This is not Brooklyn

swissmiss family is spending july on the swiss country side. We are waking up to cowbells. I kid you not. We are so amazed by our audio surroundings that G and I spent a good portion of the morning not only staring at our view (above) but also recording the cowbell-moo-sound (thank you iPhone). Here, please enjoy, our 24/7 soundtrack to our vacation! Yay Switzerland! And pardon my slower pace in posting in the coming 3 weeks.

  13. Can’t wait for my weekend in “Heidiland” beginning of August! Walking by a herd of cows makes you wonder if they are deaf already – its unbelievably loud…

  14. In Toronto the street-cars still have bells, why private cars have horns is bizarre. Bicycles used to have bells instead of whistles.

    Sounds and psychology ….

  15. Bon voyage Swissmiss family! ;)
    It is always good to get back to the natural environment and recharge
