things that I will never forget
in my heart
spent a whole week in Switzerland with my friends Claude and
Cathérine, and their two sons, François and Rémi,
in Villars-Sur-Glâne, Fribourg, where they live. I had
a really wonderful time with them. They showed me many beautiful
places, told me about their history, food, traditions etc.
first day I arrived in Fribourg, there was a festival happening
in the city and I could induldge myself with the raclette, a
delicious traditional dish of the region
is the prime speciality of Suisse-Romande, but there is a host
of other cheesy dishes claiming their roots in the region, including
the raclette, known countrywide but born in the Valais.
large half-round of special raclette cheese is held in front
of a fire, and as it melts, it is scraped (raclé) onto
a plate, and served with boiled potatoes, pearl onions and pickles.
love cheese and potatoes, so you can imagined how I loved it.
:o) On my last day in Fribourg, my friend Cathérine made
some raclette at home too.
saucisson vaudois, or mixed pork and beef Vaud sausage, is also
famous for its delicately smoked flavour, served boiled or steamed,
and accompanied by papet vaudois, a delicious purée of
potatoes and leeks. The food in Switzerland is great!
Swiss people from Fribourg reminded me a lot of Brazilian people.
I felt really "at home" in Switzerland and it is a
country I really want to visit again one day. I fell in love
with its natural beauty, its people, its music, its crafts and
it was also a great opportunity to practice my French. I love
Claude et Cathérine pour tout ce que vouz avez fait lors
de mon passage en Suisse. Merci encore François, Rémi
Merci! Merci! :o)
bisous a tous! J'éspère vous rencontrer de nouveau
