We changed venue and moved to a chalet in Langwies (in-between we had a day in
Einsiedeln where Sue
was inaugurated as a pilgrim welcoming group by the Abbott during a celebration Mass of Our Lady of Einsiedeln ).
Our chalet was exactly behind the station which was perfect. The landlady was really nice and we learnt a lot from her about the area.
Just before the station is a viaduct and the train always whistled before crossing it thus telling us
it was time to go! We arose early and were greeted with the most beautiful sunrise over the mountains
before taking the train back to Davos. This was quite a long trip having to go around two valleys.
On the advice of the churches in Davos, we took the cable car up to the middle station - Höhenweg (not a cheap trip)
and then walked from there. Arriving at the Strelapass the restaurant was preparing lunch and the rösti
smelt so good we just had to have some and it was extremely delicious.
At this point many, many people began to arrive telling us it was time to go.
(This is still Covid 19 time and we did not need to be with so many people - we heard the cook explain
how crazy the day before had been in terms of numbers.)
The walk back to Langwies was very pleasant and the way strewn with wild flowers and butterflies.
We returned to the chalet and spent time with our host learning of how the people of Valais had come
over to this area in times of famine in 13th century which is why they speak German in these parts and not Romansch.
We felt very much at home in our accommodation and did not lock up all week which was is a rare happening these days!
