swiss stuff

The lake and town this morning.

Rhatische Bahn train at St Moritz.

Returning from Davos through a Yuletide landscape.

Ending the evening at the World's largest whisky bar - actually in our hotel.

Who knows what travel in 30 years time will be like? The only things we can be sure of is that there'll be no appreciable civilian air transport and the roads will be all but empty.

Today we woke up to half the lake frozen overnight. We decided to take a shortish train trip up to Davos. The RhB do a magnificent job of providing modern transport in this underpopulated corner of Switzerland.

This evening we walked up to the Xmas market with the temperature 10 degrees below. Layers is the secret! The market was fun, really something for the locals as the season doesn't start until tomorrow. I don't think we've heard an English voice since we arrived.

I like this cosmopolitan lifestyle, the mix of nationalities and languages. We tend to slip in and out of 4 or 5 at random here, everyone seems to know what you're saying. I'll miss this when Peak Oil hits which is why I'm making the most of it now.
