God we left St. Goar when we did! Especially since
the next stop was Lucerne, a beautiful city, with a
beautiful clear lake, and our hotel high atop Mt. Pilatus.
We took a quick bus tour of Lucerne before heading to the
cable car up to the top. The views from the cable
car and mountain were gorgeous, I can't imagine waking up
and seeing the Alps each day! The shower on the
mountain had to be the weirdest thing I have ever been in,
with multiple levels. The bad thing about the
mountain is that you're stuck there after nightfall since
the only way up is cable car. We had dinner in the
hotel, chicken marsala and rice with a nice vegetable soup
for starters. That night we had a small party in
Mike and Chris' room with Canadian girls attempting poorly
to tell jokes and then it was downstairs for the
"disco" they set up for us. We were
promised Irish coffee by the tour manager. There was
no Irish coffee at the bar...
Brad and Sonny made it all the way out to a cliffside
church and back.
