Let me cross this road first.

Don’t worry, they won’t do any harm to you. They are not alive. You can pat them and pose with them as well. :)

    Is it some kind of training they provide to prospective Indian tourists??

    I saw almost the same cow in Brazil, covered with… the Brazilian flag of course. Maybe the gift of a Swiss?

  • Mridula said:

    But they are not going to walk in the middle of the road! Not real cows! :D

    @Ram,
    The watermarks are there to prevent anyone from taking away my cows. :P

    @Rocksea,
    Ha ha ha… good excuse.

    @Abhi,
    LOL.. no !

    Why do you think so?

    @Zhu,
    Maybe. :)

    @Mridula,
    It’ll be a bigger problem if they start walking on the road, they won’t budge. We have to literally lift them. :D

    They are more peaceful than the cows in India. The third cow particularly is super colourful.

    The cows in Switzerland all looked so much healthier than cows I’ve seen elsewhere. Very much like the pictures, typical brown and white :)

    Mark,
    Of course they are more peaceful than the local ones here. I loved the colors on them.

    Anil,
    Ha Ha… no doubt, they say Switzerland is a place for milk & chocolates. :D
    Thank you, I fell in love too.

    First pic almost looks like Indian cow….. most of the indian cows are almost painted in same way in festival seasons..

    Manjunath,
    Welcome here.

    Yes, you are right. First cow is almost like Indian cow.
