BRA members travelled to Sion town, not only from the Valais, but also from Lausanne and Zurich. Many were glad to see the Union Jack flying outside the restaurant, which made it obvious where they should meet up. We were warmly welcomed at the Restaurant Paradiso “Chez Chou” where we celebrated the Chinese New Year […]
