So, only enough time for another quick post. Yesterday we drove from Engelberg to Lugano with a few stops on the way, one of them a dam where they filmed scenes for a Bond movie and — wait for it Karen — “The Amazing Race.” We headed up a twisting turning road (in a 40' bus) to a tiny Swiss village looking at more spectacular scenery the whole way. Wow. We then drove on to Lugano for dinner and a lakeside stroll.

Today we took a boat ride to Gandria, a tiny village perched precariously on a hill alongside the lake. We wandered the very narrow streets and alleys for a while, always up or down, never level, and then had a delicious lunch (with adult beverages, of course) perched over the lake. It was pretty unbelievable.

The sights we have seen on this trip keep getting better and better. Tomorrow we get up early and head back to the Alps, this time into the Berner Oberland to a tiny village, only reached by gondola, called Murren. Stay tuned, should be some interesting images.

Alas, the bungee jumping off the dam was closed.
