Lucerne 

So Lucerne his a historical town in Switzerland. It’s main feature is a wall and nine towers built back starting in the 1400s. It’s old town is filled with restaurants, shops, and tourists from all over the world. There are endless sidewalk cafés and restaurants beckoning.   A mix of French, German and English is spoken here, but it is officially in the German side of Switzerland. Talking about a split personality. Three languages are spoken fluidly here. I am never quite sure if I should say danke, merci or thank you. But I can tell you I am grateful in all three languages to be in such a fine place. Enjoy the pictures for the day!

The trains do run like Swiss clockwork
  
Old town
  
The famous covered bridge
 

Home sweet home for the night
  
Many old towers to climb
  
cool clean waters
  
hmmmm chocolate anyone
  

ancient clocks in the tower
    
it’s hard to see the size of this in this picture, quite a mournful carving, dedicated to the Swiss guard
