A pretty truck comes to Grandchamp


Monday is a "desert day" of solitude and silence for the sisters of this contemplative community where I am volunteering.
On this quiet gray morning I was surprised to hear loud noises down in the courtyard.
I leaned out my window and saw this colorful truck!

The men opened all the manhole covers and made sure all was in order.

Even next to the centuries-old fountain that flows continually.

I like how the workmen in Switzerland are always happy to smile for a photo.  :)

A little bit of excitement on a quiet day at the monastery.

There are similar trucks on our streets.

Cute chaps!
But their working clothes are huge. No tight jeans here!

This is such an interesting experience for you, Dina. The sisters must love having your help again.

It must have been quite the surprise to see that on a normally peaceful day! Seeing the truck surely broke up the monotony of your regular schedule. I am glad to see the workers had a smile for you and your camera. It’s amazing how a friendly face can change your day for the better.

Shalom Rudy. Thanks for your link about the Haaker vacuum trucks! I'm always glad to learn about heavy equipment that I don't know much about.
You are certainly right about the value of even one smiling face. :)
Glad you landed on this post from November; it takes me back to nice memories of Switzerland.
