Neuchatel! and Story Starts and Ends

Neuchatel!

Life is intruding again but it seems to benefit the blog as I get to share lots of photos! These are from a day trip to the town of Neuchatel last month:

At the train station 

An ad for Appenzeller cheese. I think it says "the tangiest/most full-bodied secret in Switzerland".

Town centre

Town centre, below the castle 

Beginning the walk up... 

Fountain 

Up the winding road... 

Still climbing, now facing the dungeon tower 

Through the arch... 

View from the top 

Looking out on the dungeon tower 

1685! Parts of the castle are even older, at least 12th Century

Collegial church 

Altar 

I really like the expression on the face on the left

Leaving the church 

The castle 

Castle entrance 

Very steep street! 

The steps of the steep street 

Piggy outside a butcher shop

I think this says All Work in Latin. Wonder why?

As for ROW80, the main thing this week is figuring out an ending to, and editing, my short story.

Questions are still percolating in the back of my mind. What I need is a solid sit-down stream of consciousness session, to see what my characters think about their situation.

Do you struggle with endings or with beginnings?
