La Chaux-de-Fonds
Taken at the La Chaux-de-Fonds train station. I told the girls a witch left her broom at the door. They didn’t fall for it. Vilay said that the door looked like a face and the broom was it’s mouth. I think he’s right.

    Great pictures! Looks like you have the same stunning autumn weather that we are having. I bet it’s warmer in Switz though. We had frost last night.
    I drove through La Chaux-de-Fonds last time Mr was working in Neuchatel. Beautiful city!

    Did you know that La Chaux-de-Fonds was recently voted one of Switzerlands ugliest cities? Vilay told me that while we were walking around the city on the day I took these photos.
    There is a free zoo for kids there with a really nice park for families.

    Pumpkin, I couldn’t help noticing the Jack O’Lanterns in the window. Are they now doing Halloween in Europe?

    These photos are beautiful– and thanks for your insightful response to our survey. It will do a world of good. Keep blogging and thanks.

    I don’t know for sure if they do in Switzerland or not. I am guessing not.

    However, I have seen many Jack-o-lanterns here. I think they don’t trick or treat but perhaps decorate more than in France (at least in Alsace)and have private parties like in France.

    We are going to carve a pumpkin for Halloween. But, I am afraid to set it outside our apartment door. I have a feeling it will disappear or end up being thrown down the stairs. Not unlike the States…when kids or tricking. ;)


    You are welcome. Thanks for stopping by.

    Beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing them with us.

    I refuse to carve real pumpkins here in the warm, humid south Texas. It only takes about 24 hours before the black mold starts growing inside the cut pumpkin – yuk!

    what great photos! I love the last one.. By the way, that broom you see a lot in Switzerland, but not here in Canada!
