I saw that the object was located in Saint-Ursanne in the Swiss Jura region, not too far from Basel. A medieval town, allegedly a charming place. Thus began the QUEST FOR THE KING'S TREASURE.
|Winter has fallen over this lovely Swiss landscape|
|A great read on the train - ETCetera No. 100! This issued is packed with incredible information and beautiful images, as are all ETCetera, but this issue is much thicker, marking the no. 100 mile-stone, and also the change of editorship. Thanks Richard! And ALL OF YOU TYPOSPHERIANS, GO SUBSCRIBE NOW. This is a must, very affordable, and super value for money. So, no excuses! See here for more information.|
|View towards Saint-Ursanne.|
|Getting closer. Very nice walk through a dream landscape of white and quietness.|
|The town's name ultimately derives from latin "ursus", the bear. You can see the bear in the city's coat of arms above the archway.|
|Peace and quiet. Good lunch. Down to earth, slowing down.|
|Interesting thing to see that the information headline on the administrative building uses a typewriter font for "a novel entity, a new image" (seven municipalities being regrouped in one new community)|
|view towards the mountains - great for walking|
|Now is this a place for a treasure hunt? The entry to the antiques store. A castle, really.|
|This is already not bad.|
|Valuable information on this beautiful Noiseless typewriter. The internet had brought me here. And I discovered a REAL nice place and very beautiful spot in the Swiss Jura.|
|When I placed the little chest, a nun walked by and asked me whether this was the King's treasure. It sure is.|
|Well, it's a typewriter. So maybe not a surprise as to the category of the treasure. But what a nice typewriter! I LIKE it. Mignon model 2, quite rare in this colour.|
|One last shot, and then back with my treasure, through the snow, back to the city. What a day, what a memory.|
