Chalet Hunt Continues
Why do the French pronounce the “x” on the end of words and the Swiss don’t? No answer. It is what it is. The town of Bex in Switzerland is pronounced “Bay”. If you moved it 10 miles away across the border, it would be called “Bex” rhyming with Tex-Mex. It is enough to make you slap yourself upside the head.
Of course, I was right. It had already sold earlier that day. Ah, me. Trying to buy/rent property in Switzerland is like California, circa 1992, when everyone was flush with money, there were bidding wars everywhere and houses sold in 36 seconds.
