Still in Thun

The cold makes me slow

I've never had good experiences with downhill sports so when Charlotte wanted to bring me out skiing and to teach me to ski, i was really excited but also quite worried.

Again the ski slopes had really nice views of the mountains and it was a perfectly sunny day :)

After awhile i started learning skiing slowly, but my sprain ankle really restricted my progress alot. Every attempt to maneuver was greeted with tingling pain and soon enough the pain was increasing regardless of the precautions i took.
Young kids and old ladies were skiing around me, making me super jealous of their ability...Skiing looked so fun if you could haha...

Soon enough it was time to break for lunch

Nicole loving the sun :)

It was one of the most expensive lunches i ever had. A 1.5 liter bottle of soft drinks costed 12 francs ( crazy ! wahnsinn ! )
Over lunch, i was screaming in silence everytime my ankle was turning or even when i had to stand up. This was a signal for me to take it easy for the rest of the day...( It was really a waste as the day was almost perfect for skiing) Oh well....another time it is....

I had the great privilege of spending Hans( mischu's fathers) birthday with Therese and Mischu. We started the day walking to Gstaad. It was a nice long walk through the snow. The walk again was a testament to how fit the swiss people were regardless of their age.
Mischu parents were older than my parents and throughout the walk even as i was starting to get tired. The both of them were still going strong !!! ( my fitness has gone with the wind :( )

We soon arrived in Gwatt and had a delicious lunch

Soon after we went back to Thun where Mischu and i had a short lepak session in the house and than we were off again to Hans and Therese's house for a birthday dinner with their good friend Mr Tu and his wife ( a vietnamese couple who had spent a long time living in switzerland) It was really amazing to meet them and speak some of my broken chinese haha and just hear first hand the culture differences they had learnt to adapt to haha.
Also it was a relief finally having someone who could understand the things and perception issues i was going through.

There was one common issue everyone agreed on regardless.
Therese's legendary culinary skills !!!
