Switzerland is Amazing

Castle window at Ritterhaus in Bubikon Switzerland

I have been impressed with how beautiful Switzerland is.  There are pastoral scenes, cows and hillsides in the region we’re staying in, East of Zurich up in the hills, in a village called Bauma. There are 6,000 people in Bauma and space is abundant here in this valley.

The show I’m participating in is in a castle built in 1192 built for the Knights of Malta.  Faint frescoes are on the walls in the castle chapel, incredible stained glass in the library and sword room and a view of the Alps that are impressive.  It has snowed in the Alps since our first views and each time we see them they’re more dramatic.

The show has a variety of artisans including weavers, glass blowers, steel sculptors, and more.  Everything is for modern art at the Kunsthandwerk show and my language has been a source of amusement for everyone, including me.  Hey, I can pantomime anything!  =)
