Marchissy tales


Marchissy is a very, but really very small village of Canton Vaud,
nestled on Jura Mountains, by the limit between fields and forest.
I have a special liking for Marchissy, Iím not able to explain why.
Apparently itís just an unpretentious farmers' village
with only 400 inhabitants and a certain number of cows and other various animals.
But it has also some hidden little treasures
which wait to be revealed to the eyes of visitors, who are not too in a hurry.
You cannot find any tourist in Marchissy,
but some accidental strangers who pass by.

I was one of them.
