The conference took a break on Sunday so people could go on excursions in the area. We decided to go to Murten with Darrell's past student Yarrow and her husband Chris. They are both professors at Northwestern University in Chicago.
Murten is a small town of 5,000 just 42 minutes east of Bern by train. My good friend Vera recommended this medieval town. And our first view was as pleasant as our last - as you will see!
