SUISSE: Its super wonderful fantastic!

Unlike France (which is dirty, lazy and sloppy) Switzerland is just super!

Its so clean and efficient!
And industrious!

We went to the spa town of Yverdon-les-bains today. It was so fun. Its an hour away by train. So quick and efficient!

Its a little medieval town that has some natural hot springs. We went in the crazy museum that was in the town castle. I believe the theme of the museum is, "oh, any old thing". Hahaha - it goes from Roman pottery to 1960s fashion to a real egyptian sarcophogas. Interesting, nonetheless!

Then we went to the "Wellness", or spa. Haha, Winnie says its called the "Wellness" in English. We had to buy bathing suits, but it was worth it. There were all these outside pools that were in fact not nearly hot enough for me, there were several saunas and steam rooms. Then, when you're all super hot, there are a couple of really funny showers with buckets of cold water or evil awful cold water jets that spew at you from many directions when you think you're having a nice hot shower. Please refer to my post about the steam room and "5 head shower" from my Hong Kong trip - it was that shower, but with cold water instead of hot coming from the side jets. Aish! No thank you!

We had lunch at a Fantastische little swiss restaurant, and Doug swears it was the best meal he'd ever been served in a restaurant. When I opined that was perhaps overstating the case, he insisted this fact to be true! It was a great little lunch in any case, I concur.

Ok, time for bed. All that floating in hot baths really tires a girl out!

And a side note: no one really seemed to speak English, or care that we did, or try to speak it to us. Interesting!
