Around 120 years ago, Sir Ernest Cassel decided he would build a villa on a near-inaccessible mountain in the middle of nowhere. Many people probably thought he was crazy at the time. But when you see the Villa Cassel now, it’s difficult to imagine a more perfect location. Clear views of the mighty Alps in all directions (Matterhorn included), complete tranquillity, fresh mountain air… what more could you want? Today, a downhill ski run even leads past the villa. You’ll find the time-honoured building in Riederalp in the @aletscharena_ch. Thanks for the great photo, @michelphotography_ch.

    For our SANGEET, the Chopra family decided to depict Mimi didi and Nick’s love story though songs, scenes and skit - full bollywood style!!! The whole family rehearsed for days and days. And were ready to beat the Jonas side hollow!!! But when the ladka wallas came on stage, they stumped us. They had been rehearsing for a long time. They sang and danced LIVE, including lip syncing hindi songs!!!!!! Damn, we should have known. ? All of this - but the spirit of competition was overpowered with love, happiness, laughs, whistles, cheering and noise!!! Wow wow wow. WHAT A NIGHT. P.S. We shared the trophy ?
