Michele and I put the table here and set it!
Ok, so we had to take the table apart and bring it out in pieces, but we still did it! haha

Did you know: Swiss people invent games and rules for dropping the bread in the cheese? The guys said if one of the girls lose the bread, we have to strip, and if they drop it, they have to drink a beer. We didn’t find that very fair, so we scrapped that game!

Did you know: Fondue used to be a poor person’s meal, bread and cheese and filling.

Did you know: A shot of Kirsch breaks the cheese up to prevent stomach aches. And it’s very hard to get drunk on a stomach full of cheese. Thus, all future pictures are sober.

Once full, it was time to go out! mir händs fescht!

Half of me, Juli and Sägi

The end of day two.
