Enjoy the View


This photo comes from Sandy Mairs, one of our recent guests on the Engadine Summit Series.

Sandy writes, “It is an outhouse perched on the very edge, (only in Switzerland would you trust such technology), of a rather precipitous drop. As you can just make out in the picture, there is a window located on the back wall, at eye-level, so that one can enjoy the view while enjoying some relief (if you’re a male, that is).

Sandy shot this photo behind the Segantini Hut, of one of our favorite Engadine lunch spots. He adds, “Great barley soup, too.”

His comment regarding the soup doesn’t surprise us. Many of our guests have commented on the delicious flavor of the barley soup on offer at this particular mountain hut. In fact, we’ve often joked about linking our other favorite eating establishments and offering a “soup tour” of Switzerland. I wonder if we could offer a tour of interesting outhouses as well. It might make an exciting, and somewhat necessary, complement to the cheese tour. 😉
