Gruyere

Weekend trip to the cheese capital of Switzerland.


At the Fete de Geneve


Eric's coworker Markus Weekend trip to Gruyere - this is the path up to the town


Some cafes in the town used old boards for draining cheese wheels as tables These depressions were to validate grain measures


We had our picnic at the Gruyere castle




This fireplace was the size of a medium sized bedroom Medieval graffiti


An old hand-powered wheelchair


At the demonstration factory that produced Gruyere cheese Eric about to eat a horsemeat steak. I tasted it. What can I say? Kind of tastes like beef.


Gruyere castle from the distance This is at the Cailler chocolate factory close to Gruyere. They had a very wiz-bang automated tour


The assembly line This was the "eat as much chocolate as you want" room


Later on we took a walk through a gorge close to Gruyere




On the way home we found wild rasberries!
