Swiss Photos: Sometimes We Get Lucky

It was a long, rainy, windy walk today, but we made it Meiringen. 
Unfortunately, Ron didn’t get any of the views, but he did get something  totally unique. We walked into a traditional farmer’s festival just after crossing the Jochpass. It was amazing. The rain gave it a different and unique feel. I told Ron that, normally, if someone was able to see just ONE of the things that was happening at this festival, it was a good day. We got to see all sorts of things! Sometimes we just get lucky. 
Here are some images:

There is nothing more Swiss than hot, steamy Raclette.
