Excursion to Emmental

After breakfast, contestants were whisked to the location of the first MEMO excursion by two buses. They were accompanied by their guides, but leaders remained at the hostel in order to coordinate the exam grading. Once arrived at the forest clearing, the contestants were given the freedom to enjoy themselves however they liked. Some built a dam in the nearby creek while others preferred to simply remain in the clearing where tables had been set up to play card games. For lunch, contestants roasted sausages over a fire.

Our hosts were delightful. The performance of Frik and Dave, the musicians, was tremendously well received. Karl allowed the contestants to participate in the process of chocolate-making: starting from roasting and peeling cocoa beans then grinding the beans by hand. Sacha demonstrated archery techniques that the contestants could test out themselves using traditional wooden bows.
