Church bells go off every 15 minutes, all night long
These are Pete’s pictures of Switzerland. His family lives near the Bodensee (Lake Constance), so we used that as our base camp before venturing out on other trips around Europe last year. Saentis (2,502 m, 8,205 ft) is about an hours’s drive away. He and his brother went on a few hikes in that area. His brother has climbed the mountain several times; I always take the cable car to the top.

We never had a clock in Goldach; we could see at the church clock from his kitchen, or listened to the church bells. Every 15 minutes. All night long. They went off twice, in case you lost count the first time.
