Grusse! (Greetings in local Swiss German dialect)
A day of planes, trains, and automobiles has delivered me to my home away from home this month : Oberdiessbach. Oberdiessbach is a quaint town about a 15 minute train ride southeast of Bern and is exactly what I was hoping it would be. Picture small, narrow streets (some old rock, cobblestone or brick), pitched roof houses with bright-colored shutters and flower boxes around the windows, bright green pastures with large peaks of the Alps in the background, and stores that close between 12-1:30 for lunch.
