Swiss mix

Trip pix. We stayed in Lausanne and tram-tastic Zurich, and visited Gruyères, Lucerne, Winterthur, and the Château de Chillon near Montreux.

The Lion of Lucerne, commemorating Swiss casualties from the French Revolution. It was sculpted by Bertel Thorvaldsen, whose “strict adherence to classical norms has tended to estrange modern audiences,” according to Wikipedia. The modern audience on safari didn’t seem too estranged.

The Lindt factory shop, aka paradise, can be found just south of Zurich. To some of us, chocolate is more valuable than gold.

To facilitate their famed punctuality, Swiss engineers swapped old-fashioned cow catchers for something more proactive.

Punctuality? Scandal on our way back from Gruyères.

Ode to joy. They don’t make a sign for that.

Switzerland is expensive. Halfway through I ran out of colour.
