chapel bridge

We left as early as we could the next morning for Lucerne. I'm sure we could have found more to do in Basel than..nothing, which is what we did, but we were pretty pissed off and had no idea what to do. But Basel is where Roger Federer is from and my sister is in love with him, so she was happy.

We got to Lucerne and walked to our hostel, it was a pretty nice walk along the lake. We put our bags there but couldn't check in until later so we went to do our Lucerne sightseeing. We walked up to the chapel bridge and crossed it and then walked through some side streets, all the shops were closed but  we found our way to the famous Dying Lion, a monument to Swiss soldiers that died during the French Revolution. We walked back to train station area to get some food for dinner and then went back to our hostel. It was a pretty boring place, kind of cold..not like the temperature but the atmosphere. We made ourselves some food and then pretty much just went to bed
