Sense of righteousness: angry anonymous letter regarding clothes left in communal washing machine at 14:04 last Tuesday
Sense of despair: no public hols until Xmas
Sense of eternity: church bells
Sense of longing: fondue

it's only angry if the note is there at 14:01.
At 14:04, it's a "welcome in Switzerland bonus".
At 14:10, the neighbor is in love.

Re: Switzerland through the 5 senses

Thanks, Taveau! Makes me realise all the little things that I enjoy, but somehow overlook!

Seeing: The stunning greenish-blue colour of the waters of Lake Geneva just before an impressive storm (a mix of teal and turquoise).

Smelling: The smell of rain on the very parched fields in front of my place (I am eagerly waiting for the next one)

Hearing: The jingling of the bells of goats and sheep

Tasting: The mouth-wateringly yummy grilled catfish served at my university's cafeteria (surpasses any fish & chips)

Touching: The bark of the grand sequoia in Parc Mon Repos

Re: Switzerland through the 5 senses

Here's mine

Sight: The Swiss flag which is everywhere you go! In my home country I have only ever seen so many union jacks in central London

Hearing: Church bells

Touch: The feeling which accompanies the crumping sound as my feet compact snow beneath them

Taste: Chocolate!

Smell: Rain. I love the smell of rain here. Back home it rained a lot too but the smell was masked/mixed with the city grime and it didn't smell lovely.

Re: Switzerland through the 5 senses

Here are mine:
Sight: Rapeseed fields - patches of sunshine on earth, I call them.
Hearing: Cow bells - despite the polemic around this, I still find them so quintessentially Swiss.
Smell: Freshly cut grass. "nuff said
Taste - A well deserved bratwurst and cold drink, at the top of a mountain, after an exhausting hike.
Touch - Snow - the cold snow which induces a very nice fuzzy warm feeling inside, and brings out the little girl in me
