    It is unexpected to find in Wisconsin a bit of Switzerland that really looks like Switzerland!

    I lived in Wisconsin but never visited New Glarus. Looks like it is worth stopping by next time I'm in the area.

    New Glarus was founded by emigrats from Switzerland which were obviously quite homesick - thus all those cows :) Thanks for your visit to Hong Kong.
