This update covers the last couple of days. Yesterday was a lazy day, but got some tasks completed that have been on my mind, took some walks and napped too. I’d been waiting for the next snow showers to begin and glad the snow started up again yesterday morning. It took a break during the afternoon, then snowed lightly off and on last night. Now its coming down fairly good today, Friday afternoon. I’ve kept reminding myself that I should be careful what I ask for. Not that I’d get snowed in – here of all places, but it could get real messy if there was enough moisture to dump several feet within a few hours. I could happen.
Pictures below are kind of random. Was out for a walk on the 11th and took pictures of the (one day way) full moon – again trying out new features of my phone’s camera. Also some other night shots.
After Twelfth Night, and the tree is still up? Nice tree – maybe it is traditional that the village tree stays lite until the end of January?
Today I took pictures of the grocery store where I shop. And a video showing the extensive selection of fruits and vegetables. Also a picture of the various breads available. Some birds were visiting the grocery as well.
Took a picture of the horses used for taxi rides. The horses have bells on and you can hear them coming from a few blocks away.
Our friend Paddington Bear was also visiting the Zermatt village as well.
Tomorrow I leave to Milan and will stay overnight there before leaving for Cairo on the 15th.
