   Geneva       Luzern   

I think Luzern is the quintessential Swiss town. So beautifully situated, so meticulously maintained and so easy to get around. We did get snowed on and rained on but also had some sunny days. The swans were everywhere and the external decorations on buildings was more than in most places. I particularly liked the paintings under the eaves - very unusual.

The Luzern version of a bendy-bus.

A subtle scarecrow on the hotel where we stayed.

Weggis - a village just down lake Luzern a little.

Weggis again - so beautiful.
