Berne (Bern), Switzerland photos

We took the train to Bern on Thursday. We felt the need to get out of the village. Since it was a holiday in the Jura, Vilay didn’t work. The weather was warmer than it had been all week which didn’t help our restless mood.

The Swiss Alps are all the way in the back. I could see them clearly but the camera doesn’t capture distance very well.

These chandeliers were for sell at a little shop.

My camera didn’t capture the depth of color in the trees and the reflection in the water below. It was beautiful.

This life size chess board was a popular attraction with many people standing around watching the game with lively interest. The large wooden game pieces are worn from years of use.

The market in Bern where Vilay bought some cheese and a dried sausage.

The cheese was very strong but good. I can’t bring myself to eat dried sausage. The smell makes my stomach turn. However, my children enjoyed it with their father.

    I absolutely loved your photos. Many times you need to manipulate the camera into getting the colors. Try pointing it towards the sky and getting a blue color before clicking. Sometimes this worked even on my old 3meg pixel camera.

    As for the cheese, it looks like it’s gruyere. I miss eating that. WE have it here but P won’t let me buy it. laughs.. it stinks…

    Glad you got out, something we desperately need to do!
