Peekaboo! Come and find me

Are you coming? There is some beautiful walking along the Silsersee lake towards the village of Sils one time home to Nietzsche.
“I have given a name to my pain and call it ‘dog’: it is just as faithful, just as obtrusive and shameless, just as entertaining, just as clever as any other dog—and I can scold it and vent my bad moods on it, as others do with their dogs, servants, and wives.”
Not with my mate Rudy you don’t but i get what you’re saying!

Beautiful countryside around the town of Bergün. Best foot forward Rudy.

Bergün (1376 m) – the location in the 1990s for the filming of the TV series “The Director” had already been in the spotlight before, in 1952, when the first Heidi film was filmed in the nearby village of Latsch. The heart of the village, with its picturesque Engadine houses – lavishly decorated with sgraffito, frescoes and oriel windows – an 800 year old Romanesque church and a Roman tower, are amazingly unchanged.

“The world was conquered through the understanding of dogs; the world exists through the understanding of dogs.” Nietzsche knew a thing or two.
Rudy pauses for thought on the Albula river near Bergün. “Is it the understanding of dogs or what dogs understand….?”
