Deep thought in the market – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day….” A goal is a dream with a deadline”.

” Whether you think you can, or you think that you cannot, you are right”.

Another photo from the market in Apia, Samoa for the picture today, but this time from the taro section.  Taro is a starchy root vegetable, popular in South East Asia and the Pacific Islands.  It is one of the few crops which can be grown in flooded conditions, and thrives in damp or wet soils.  Interestingly, it is inedible when raw and has to be cooked or soaked in water overnight before being eaten.  The leaves are also used in cooking, as well as the main part of the plant.    Fantastic even light for this photo, and an easy shot for the camera.

Typically Swiss – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…” You are only young once, but you can be immature forever”.

” When it comes to thought, some people stop at nothing”.

Standards are very high in Switzerland, and things work as they should.    Had a trip to Kandersteg recently and was very lucky to stay in The Hayloft, which is a traditional Swiss chalet now operating as a B&B (www.thehayloft.ch).  The building is almost 500 years old, and has fantastic  views of the waterfalls and mountains nearby.   Not only that, but the hosts that run the chalet were excellent, so the hospitality was great too.   Just what you want when you are in Switzerland !!   Kandersteg (altitude 1200m)  is a great base for hiking, and with the network of cable cars and gondolas, it is very easy to reach the higher valleys.  About 7.3 million people live in Switzerland, with around 70% of the country being mountainous.    The famous Swiss army knives were originally all red so that they could be found easily in the snow.  The Swiss are also famous for having the highest chocolate consumption per capita in the world.
