Luzern invades Geneva

Only went to my local for a quick drink and some grub. There happened to be a group of 25 Luzerners, all singers in a choir and guests of a friend who happens to be from Luzern too.

The cheeky bastard told them I was a yodler and wouldn't it be great if I performed a solo yodel for them.

Fortunately, I told them the only solos I could do were Austrian yodels as Swiss ones tend to be several voices echoing each other (and I know the Swiss hate the Austrians, right?) so I'd get away with going back to eating my pudding.

Unfortunately I cannot say no to a lovely free Whisky (or was it eight??) and those Luzerners do happen to know a few Austrian yodels, too.

It has a been a lively evening and I still cannot speak a word of Luzern dialect but they can all sing "Loch Lomond" now!! Vive les échanges culturels!
