So today we wandered around Lucerne which is lovely and clean and the weather Gods continue to be wonderfully kind to us.
We followed them to where they met and were given a drink each and then they headed off as a group then the Swissi Guard came out also to eat and drink in celebration.
Then a band passed by.
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lion_Monument but basically it commemorates the massacre of Swiss guards in France during the French Revolution. It was created in 1820-21. Mark Twain called it "the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world". We think he is right.
Oh and I keep forgetting things so here are a few catch-ups.
Forgot to say yesterday that Swiss trains are sooooo quiet!
Garrie's sniffles disappeared in about 24 hours but he still claimed he had "the man flu" and thanks NOT Linda for telling him it is true that men suffer more with a cold. If you haven't seen this YouTube it's a classic.
Oh thanks too for those I know are REALLY reading the blog who let me know about what was a deliberate mistake when I called hydrangeas, rhododendrons. (Though perhaps there are more readers out there and you just don't know your plants).
Finally the answer to the size. About 8" x 5" in the old language in total and just look again at the detail including the very tiny clocks. Auf wedersen for now!
