Day 3, part three: Here you can see how the sausages live

Mare, Sofia, Slavomira and Flavio knew that they were in the Swiss mountains but it took them only a bus ride to the Scottish Highlands:

“Our group of four visited the small village of Tschlin which is located farther down the Engiadina valley. After a half hour ride we met Jon Janett, a farmer who owns Scottish Highland cows. He bought three of them ten years ago in order to be able to sell more expensive specialities (even via Internet). He provides 2 webcams which allow you to watch his 12-headed cattle in the barn.

But Jon is not the only one trying to make his products unique. The whole village is working together and they put all their products and shops under the same corporate identity. It was quite impressing how inventive the people of Tschlin are. They don’t give up and try to export their specialities and bring tourists to the village.”
