Les Coqs en Suisse

The disgrace of the bird flu has hit Frenchmen hard. Look at them hang their heads in disgrace!
Actually, this is a photo I took at the Natural History Museum in Neuchatel, where we were this weekend. They had a special exhibition on chicken... good timing I'd say. It was very entertaining, though I found the permanent exhibition equally stunning. The dioramas were simply gorgeous.
Switzerland is exactly what everybody imagines it to be. A land of stunning civility, with tons of great chocolate, fondue, and no shit on the streets. Very picturesque, and lots of beer. We spent a quiet time walking up hills, appreciating snow, mountains and lakes, and feeling rather happy being far away from Paris.
