Ed anche Sumiswald, è proprio un bel paese, ritratto in una foto altrettanto graziosa.

Hello May, My Grandmother (Dr Kornelia Bachmann)was from Altstaetten, near St. Gallen and she was from the Naeff Family. I will try to attend our Familienfest next June there, depending on how my Daughter's Tournament schedule allows it. Which part of Switzerland are you from? Liebe Grusse, Gabor

Precious all the photos of Switzerland, for its beautiful color. Greeting

Oh, May...I really like this one alot. The lovely colors and fading hills in the background are just marvelous.

I am recuperating well. Still using a walker, which I detest and hope to "graduate" to a cane soon. I am house bound for the most part, but look forward to getting out more by early June. Thanks for asking.

Gorgeous. Colorful, beautiful architecture... an inspiring setting!!!

I'm chiming in on this shot too, May. I like the mixing of old and new architecture with that great Swiss background. A real beauty.

Just keep the Sumiswald landscapes coming, May. Your wonderful images of Emmental in general are becoming indelible in our minds and in our hearts too. And the photographer is very special too.

Warmest greetings,

Laci, Tamás, Gabor, Antonio, Julie, Andres, Bruce, Hank, Ian, GK., thank you all so much for your friendly comments!

Tamás, yes, in fact it is a region, where people go for hiking holidays.

Gabor, I am from this region, between Lucerne and Berne. The photo above is from the neighbourvillage. My village belongs to the same commune. Altstätten is in the east of Switzerland. I hope you will be able to join the "Familienfest"! If ever you find the time, just send me a message through Panoramio, though I probably won't be here most of the time in June. I have some plans to go to the UK.

Julie, I am happy to hear you are better of! And I sincerely wish, you will be able soon to do your photos again.

Bruce, of course I do, they have not only a red wall on the gymnastic-hall, but covered all roofs in red for my photo.

Hank, yes, there is a pleasant mix of houses, grown through the centuries.

Ian, special thanks for appreciating the photos of this region!

My thanks and my best wishes to all of you, May
