Alpchäsmärcht

Thanks to my colleague Thomy’s suggestion, Beverly and I ventured to Muotathal for the annual Alps cheese festival. Families from the area gather to sell their wares (mostly cheeses, crafts, and baked goods), compete in “timber sports”, and play traditional music, including alp horns and accordions. Josh kept shouting “more cowbell” but it must not have translated into Swiss German. Fortunately, the cows surrounding the festival added plenty of impromptu cowbell to the music.
