Monday and Swiss delicacies
Today it poured all day. We decided riding easy in the rain would not be a very good recovery exercise so the day was rather focused on food and nursing the bruises and sore spots that seemed to pop up everywhere. It was a national holiday in Switzerland, a catholic holiday we do not observe at home. One of Sandra's relatives who is a professional chef came over and made us a mango stuffed lamb for lunch and Sepp treated Sandra and I to truffles from the local bakery. We are now headed to Solothurn to visit Wendy and Kris at their host families place for a raclette dinner. Raclette is a type of cheese. You melt slices and eat it with potatoes, pickles, pineapple and other things you might not think of putting cheese on but are very tasty together.
