Song of the Day: Woodstock, by Crosby, Stills and Nash
By the time we got to Woodstock, we were half a million strong
And everywhere there was song and celebration.
We are stardust, we are golden, we caught in the devil's bargain
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.
We left Montreaux around 8 this morning. We were amazed at how quiet everything was. Perhaps the Swiss were still licking their wounds from Switzerland's loss to France in last night's World Cup game. After a beautiful walk on Lake Geneva, we came upon Castle Chillon. A little background on the castle from Wiki:
We saw a lot of dogs on the walk today. We also saw a lot of dogs in Italy- many of the houses had signs warning us of dogs. Interestingly, one of our guide books said to be careful with the dogs in France and Italy, because they might attack. However, it said you don't have to be concerned in Switzerland, because the owners are required by law to get proper training for their dogs! Switzerland is a highly regulated country, but the people seem to go along with it. We need to get the tea party people over here to shake things up!
