Day 5: There will be cheese…

That day was promised to be the “food processing” day, so we expected lots of possibilities to have something to eat. In the morning we went to a cookery course in another town, where we had the opportunity to learn about the Engadine cuisine and help to make a traditional soup we later had for lunch. In the afternoon we split into four groups and went on the Amazing Race for the last ...

Day 4: Another day of the Amazing Race*

The day started off with another tasty Swiss breakfast after which we returned to our workstation in Bad Scoul. There we got to taste the mineralwaters Scoul is famous for. Some of the waters, like the sulfur water Lucius, was a bit too strong for most of us, but waters containing calcium and iron were immensly enjoyed. New four groups were formed. The first group went to visit Ftan again and got ...

Day 3, part four: Let the history flow or how books came out from the fridge

All the other groups went to certain places, obviously connected in some way to agriculture, but the archive group, what should it expect? You can read some of their expectations and can also watch the documentary they prepared. “So there we were: Five students, one archivist and a whole lot of books. Really old books- no joking, we got to see documents that were over 600 years old. But one ...

Day 3, part three: Here you can see how the sausages live

Mare, Sofia, Slavomira and Flavio knew that they were in the Swiss mountains but it took them only a bus ride to the Scottish Highlands: “Our group of four visited the small village of Tschlin which is located farther down the Engiadina valley. After a half hour ride we met Jon Janett, a farmer who owns Scottish Highland cows. He bought three of them ten years ago in order to be able to sell...

Day 3, part two: Vná, somewhere in the mountains…

If they thought that Ftan was small, Vná definitely topped that off: 60 inhabitans and more cows than people. But let us read what Dorotea, Lory, Ilmars, Martyna and Rebecca told us about their visit: “Our group visited the village Vná. After having prepared some questions concerning the farm that expected us, we went off by bus. In Vná, which is 300m higher than Scuol, we were greeted by an...

Day 3, part one: A miller’s tale

This day started really early with a bus trip to Ftán, a village high up in the mountains. We all visited two farms there, both doing ecological farming, and we got the chance of tasting bread and cheese. Afterwards we split into four different groups and we will let now the groups report themselves about their visits. We start with the first group which visiting a mill in Ftàn. So I pass the floo...

There are mountains at the end of the tunnel…

The evening before, we were told that they start serving breakfast at 6.30 and that we have to get going at 8.15. Jane:”So I set my alarm to 6.30 just to have a shower before everyone else does. It turned out I wasn’t the only one thinking that, so I still had to wait for 15 minutes to finally have my refreshing shower.”  After waking up with the help of a cold shower we got dressed an...

Welcome to Switzerland

After an exhausting trip- except for Germán from Spain, who could travel business class due to overbooking-  all participants have arrived in Zurich, together with all their luggage! Tomorrow we will all leave Zurich and go on a three-hour train trip to Scuol in the Lower Engandine. There we can start with the “field work”. Tomorrow we will report on our first day of work also with som...
