Then to Trommelbach Falls- a series of water falls within - arocky hill- you reach the top in a winch. Next stop Jungfrau by cogwheel train- from theobservatory on top glistening snow-covered peaks.
Next onto Lucerne - bought musical box, cow bell & horn in the shop , then went to view the chapel bridge across the lake. Swans glided in the lake. Then onto the poignent lion monument carved in a rock face, in memory of the Swiss guards who died protecting Marie Antoinette. Hot indian dinner in a beautifulhotel.
From Leysin proceeded to Jungfrau ,a peak at 2900 metres -ascent by cable car. Then a ski- lift to blinding snow - covered slopes - daughter got to sled - had a ball! Then to the restaurant at thepeak - and piping hot Indianlunch! The ingenuity of man- warm spaces, restaurant , and clean toilets at the top of a peak!
Leysin -rightlycalled the oxygen of the Alps- the air you breathe in is pure & invigorating. The hotel we stayed in was modern withdisco lights inthe faucet. As we took our customery walk on the road outside , we kept out of the way of a drunk. We passed a shop window displaying a stuffed fox , outside was a poster for a Lady Gaga concert in Zurich while profound silence reigned in the quaint houses . Yes, we had an Indian dinner & then stt blissfully.
