Since the weather was bad, we decided to check out the town instead of slugging it out on the slopes with high winds and zero visibility.
The shots below are reduced from the output size of the digital camera to 700 pixels wide.

Hotel Perren. Electric taxis were everywhere.
It was fun walking around town. Shopping was fun too. I bought myself the Swiss equivalent of a Timex watch..
