Kiefer Sutherland in the Berner Oberland

 

Interlaken Trucker Festival

In Interlaken? Really? Seriously?

 

At night, in Grindelwald, after very full days and after evenings spent out on our patio watching the sunlight dim and then disappear on the Eiger Nordwand, and after I’d done a bit of blogging and other writing, my wife and I took to binge-watching an episode or three every night of Designated Survivor on my computer.  (I was briefly a 24 addict, too.)

So it was fun to see posters around Interlaken and Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald itself advertising, of all things, an International Trucker & Country Festival, 23-25 June — especially one that includes Kiefer Sutherland as one of the guest artists:

Line dancing!  1400 trucks!  Swiss men and women wearing cowboy hats in the middle of the Alps!

 

I hadn’t realized that this Festival has been going on since, I think, 1994.  I would have found it virtually unthinkable back in the 1300s, when I served in Interlaken and Switzerland as a missionary.  Funny!

 

Unfortunately, we’ll miss it.
