Young Kenyan Man in Switzerland

After a 6 month hiatus I'm back to my globe trotting ways. This time it was a conference for users of some equipment that we use at work. The company is based in Switzerland, so they chose somewhere in the Alps for purposes of making their customers feel special. I now realize why managers go for conferences, they hold the purse strings. Being a techie, I went there simply because I use the equipment more than anyone else.

The highlight of course was a glacier walk in the Alps. Being a Kenyan born and bred in Nairobi, snow is something I'd only seen up Mt Kenya from far far away. The Eastern European guys had a field day taunting me that I'd freeze to death. Then they pelted me with snow and made me eat it!!! But it was so much fun, at -7 degrees.

Nyahururu eat your heart out!!!

One thing about this beautiful country is that it comes with a hefty price tag. Everything is priced over the moon, and being in a tourist town, it was insane even for the other Europeans in our group. Guess I'd better look but no touching...

Enjoy the beauty of Europe. I think that's the most beautiful country in the world. Don't forget to go down the Grimsel experience of a lifetime I tell you.

Glad to hear you liked it and had a good time, so that I doubt sound fake when I say it is beautiful.Yep, it is quite expensive but when you have been around for a while, you would know where to get what without draining your pockets.

Next time you can holla. It is always good to hear from watu wa nyumbani

In terms of beauty, I think Swiss got the lion's share. I'm not sure that I went down the Grimsel Pass...

I forgot you are there!!! Pole, and I had a couple hours to randa randa in Bern for some shopping. Maybe next time (long shot)?
