21 march 2005 - Sierre, Switzerland
Upon return from a concert with Club Moral in Bern, we spent 2 days in Sierre. On this day we got up early to climb a mountain, in full gear we crossed some snowy ridges. This is Captain Mauro in a heroïc pose. Our clumsy stumbling on the icy slopes are not documented, well eh, we have our pride too.
