Hier ist ze view!

Ze hotel ve are stayink at in Lucerne has internet access and a PC (because I never again want to lug a laptop thru airport security).

Here is the view from our vindow in Luzern… (click for full size…. not pre-processed so big)

Und hier is vere ve vere yezterday: up mount Titlis: 10,000 feet, and in bright sunshine above the cloud layer. We all got sunburned. I felt lousy – the effects of oxygen deprivation are very wierd… slight headache, tiredness, and getting out of breath walking around. You have to REMEMBER to breathe more often and harder than normal…. Wierd.

Beautiful photos. I blew up the mountain one and just stared at it for a few minutes just now. Thanks!

Ooh, that brought back memories, Wally.

Here’s our (much lower resolution) photo of that bridge taken with state-of-the-art 2002 technology. It’s taken from the opposite side. You might be able to see your hotel.

And here’s the (pre-blog days) travelogue.

Have fun!

Wow. I’m writing to you from Lake Taupo,New Zealand. We *did* lug our laptop through airport security, but internet access has been dodgy and or expensive.

Despite the sunburn, I hope you are enjoying your European odyssey. Wave hello to the Lindt factory for me!
