I took the photos below last week before we left to visit Strasbourg. We took a walk around our village with my Inlaws. The girls were so happy that they could ride their bikes.
The snow is all gone now except for some patches here and there at the very top of the mountain. The village has been taking down the snow markers. During our walk this afternoon we saw flower boxes for the village stacked on the side of a public building ready to be put out.
I think it is safe to say I can put away the snow pants!
We are looking to move to Bienne.
I didn’t like this city before because it wasn’t clean. Over the last year the city has cleaned up to Swiss standards. It is, also, investing and developing the area around the lake as well as the roads in the city. The lake used to have trash floating all around the edges but now the trash is gone.
I see this as the perfect city for my children because it is bilingual (French and Swiss German). When you are living in Switzerland that is a good combination. The fact that my children can speak English is just one more feather in each of their caps.
