The Top of Europe

No pictures to share yet … but the trip is going well.  Arrived in Zurich on Wednesday morning, and then connected to Geneva, where we rented a car to drive to Lausanne on the north shore of Lake Geneva.  Absolutely lovely place. 


By far the most wonderful side trip that we took this week was the railroad tour to ‘The Top of Europe’.  There is no way in Hades that I will ever climb the Eiger using pitons and rope.  But I looked out of the North Wall from a point about a third of the wall up the face  … from the Inside!  What a hoot.  The tunnel goes through the solid rock, and comes out on top for an absolutely stunning view.


Heading to Florence / Firenze tomorrow … Ciao!
