Wine, My Dawgs and Horny People



Went with a collegue to a wine tasting in Peissy, which is a wine area about 20 minutes outside of Geneva. The cost of the glass was only 8 francs and all the wine you can drink. I'm getting better at distinguishing some tastes/smells, but definitely no pro. At the end of the day I end up stumbling on to a train back to town.

Here are some pics of the Bernese Mountain Dog. The cart around the wine, so they come in very handy.





They start really young here, teaching the young ones how to handle their alcohol. (Disclaimer: This picture is in no way promoting underage drinking.)


The Alpen Horn - A curved wooden horn, sometimes as long as 6 meters (approximately 20 feet), used by herders in the Alps to call cows to pasture. I think they need a little practice. Take a listen, press 'play'.
