Day Eleven: Lugano, Switzerland

...and then....there was Switzerland. Switzerland is the most naturally beautiful location we visited on our trip. It rained most of the time we were there, so the pictures don't do it justice....I'll just have to go back for my blue sky pictures. Switzerland is also the most expensive place we visited. The Swiss Franc matched the American Dollar almost exactly, but it was still costly. Our first stop was in the town of Lugano. The town curves around a lake, and the Alps are the backdrop to this sailboat, and swan covered lake. The lake was crystal blue, and you could see clear the the bottom. All the colors were so vivid. I think God used some of the best colors in the box of crayons when He created Switzerland. We walked down the park that followed the lake's edge. We shopped through the town, and got our first glimpse of Swiss Army Knives, and tried our first bite of Swiss chocolate.
