On Sunday we caught the train for Winterthur and the Albanifest, a carnival happening in their Altstadt (Old City).
The carnival offered rides galore...
Most of which I would never personally ride!
But I did enjoy watching all the people. Especially the faces that said "What in tarnation are they doing up there?" Or whatever the Schweizer Deutsch equivalent is.
And, of course, there was artery-clogging food galore.
Although after watching these pigs on a spit...
I almost became a vegetarian!
But they did have some healthy choices.
And many booths offered fresh fruit. Although I am not certain how healthy it is after you dip it in chocolate, sprinkle nuts and add whipped cream.
After walking around for a couple of hours, it was time to sit in the shade at one of the many beer/wine gardens.
Ya know, the local red wine wasn't bad after the 2nd or 3rd glass.
And it was fun to watch this Swiss-Style Oompah Band. Especially as they were so obviously having fun themselves!
