Switzerland I live in a wide valley that was formed by a glacier. A big beautiful river runs through it. In this valley (between Thun and Bern, 30km long) there are several bigger and smaller villages, the one I live in has a population of about 3500 people. I live on an altitude of about 550m and when the weather is clear I have a nice view of the Swiss Alps from my bedroom window. The village is surrouned by agriculture and some forests. It is very green (well not at the moment) I live in a small double storey town house. There are 6 rows of townhouses and from far away it looks like rabbit cages. But inside the houses are very cosy. It is all made by wood. We have a small back yard where we spend our summer evenings, chatting and drinking wine with our neighbours.
I work in Bern, which is about 14km away. I go to work by train, the train station is 4 minutes walk away from our house. The trains run every 30 minutes.

You seem to have chosen well! A house you love in a small village, yet so close to Berne...a beautiful shot. I like your yards and small is good, less hard labour! It's very welcoming and speaks of many great meals and drinks with friends. I like the stove and the red wheelbarrow with its blue pot of roses...lovely. Are those cages?
Bunnies! I would love to see them. This brings back one of my earliest memories. When I was in kindergarten, we had a pet rabbit at school. The big treat was to have a turn and take the bunny out at recess...He was warmly wrapped in a blanket and I thought it was thrilling.
