The Land of Heidi

Whenever I travel outside of Switzerland, I am always amazed by the number of people that promptly associate Heidi and Switzerland. I wonder how many of them would actually expect to see young kids playing around chalets located in some remote Alp valley. There are still a few Heidi and Peter out there, yet Switzerland evolved into a modern, cosmopolite and multi-ethnic society.  And luckily, the latest songs have certainly replaced the horrendous “Yodel”. I am sure that Heidi would have loved it.  (click on picture to enlarge)
