Oh, what fun we had this morning. All the chocolate we could eat!!! The chocolate factory made chocolate for us to sample; then we made our own chocolates to take with us; then the chocolate museum offered samples of chocolate; then at the inevitable gift and coffee shop you could buy more chocolates. WOW!! We dived right in of course and did ourselves proud!!

In the afternoon, (we were too full to eat lunch!), we took a walk up to the old city wall. It was quite an uphill hike. Not really a great view. We just saw the city; not very pretty. We saw all the pretty yesterday!!!

Tonight, we're going out to dinner with Jim and Sue and our trip leader Sjaack. We're going to a traditional Swiss restaurant and having racklette. It's a cheese dish where a slow flame melts the cheese and you scrape it off as it melts and enjoy it with great bread.

Tomorrow our bus takes up into the Alps. Should be some great pictures up there!
