Just went to pick up Toby’s dog, Laika, and got confronted by a herd of cows heading down a side street.
The reason? Well, today’s the day the cows a taken down from the high pasture – the alpage – and to celebrate, the cows are trotted through town, and this afternoon the raclette festival starts, to help celebrate.
The more cynical amongst you migh see this as a tenuous excuse to drink Fendant and eat cheese. And you’d be absolutely right.
