Davos : A little damp in Davos :(

I arrived in Davos yesterday evening and found decent private accommodation with little difficulty and at the same cost as the dormitory hostel, not so great for the social element but I am bone weary at the moment and would make poor company.
Today I have to make a few decisions about the next steps. The plan all along has been to treat myself to a run over (and through) the Swiss Alps on The Glacier Express train but for this, if possible I want great weather to make the most of what will be an extravagant, but panoramically superb 7 hour journey. So for juuuust once in my life I’m willing to glance at a 5 day weather forecast.
So today is an opportunity to catch up on some journal typing. At the time of writing (today 13/09/08) I am STILL yet to publish my first blog entries on the net and there are large portions of the journey yet to be given textual consideration. I’m beginning to feel like a naughty schoolboy who’s handing in a late homework assignment… “please Miss, it was the dog wot swallowed me laptop, honest it were!”
But the morning rain (for yes, rain there has been) clears and I feel I must say “hi!” to the town by day after my stroll through it last night.
I walk all the way through town to Davosersee (Lake Davos) and admire briefly the view. Again those mischievous fog banks are fingering their clammy way through the wooded hilltops on the far side of the lake and before I know it again The Fog is upon me and the lake is being swallowed.
Afterword : [as I upload 09/10/08 I notice that what REMAINS the one and ONLY proper day of rain so far in my meteorologically miraculous journey it was - of course - on the 13th of the month! ;D by that reckoning I am gonna get p*ssed all over again next Monday... I'm in Cyprus, it's never gonna happen folks! Sorry. ;) ]
