comes from the mountains. It lives in the Alps, somewhere beyond the Schrattenfluh. It pops up and disappears again. It croaks and brays and squeaks, and sings in a high, very high pitch!
Sometimes it climbs out of the eddies of the Lake of Lucerne or turns up suddenly in Zurich’s trendy Seefeld neighborhood. It has also been sighted at the Hirschen hotel at Langnau in the Emmental.
It is capricious and needy. But also tough and tenacious.
Some are relieved when it finally disappears.
