Sorry for the delay. I was at a conference at the Belterra Hotel and Casino this past week. Casino was not bad, the carpeting is getting long in the tooth and a little sticky. But otherwise pretty good - EXCEPT $10/DAY FOR INTERNET ACCESS!!!!! Next time I will bring a wireless access point and give free internet to the entire floor. (Thanks to Ed for that idea!)
As for Vevay and Patriot - great towns. Vevay had a street festival for 1 night only for us. I guess the first Friday of every month they have a street fest. Really a good time. A few local artists had some really good displays of photography and oil painting.
How does this relate to tractors? I was amazed at the number of small tractors setting for sale. It makes sense when you think about it - with all the hills it would be hard to run big equipment. I'll post a few pics when I get them downloaded.
