A Romansh speaker in “la Bassa”

So I sent a Postcrossing post card to someone in Switzerland the other day, and mentioned that I love languages and that I had learned a bit of Romansh.

When she registered the postcard today, she said that she speaks Romansh, too! She said she grew up bilingually (with both Romansh and German), and that she speaks Romansh to her children. What a surprise! What are the odds of finding someone outside of the canton of Graubünden who speaks Romansh. (And I was even more surprised since Postcrossing lets you list the languages that you speak in your profile, and she only listed German, Italian, and English there.)
