Luzern is a very, very pretty city, on the shore of the Vierwaldstättersee, or 'lake of the place with four forests'.
|In the background on the right the third of the four forests. I guess.|
A famous sight is the newest bridge of Luzern, built in 1993 out of wood, which does not even carry cars or trains:
|Seriously. You'd guess the bridge was a historic landmark or something, the way they carry on about it.|
Frankly, I don't get why it is so famous, since it is only a copy of another wooden bridge, which coincidentally, burned down in the same year. Also, ware the attacking birds! Birds in Luzern are a constant threat to the unwary visitor, here is one on an attack run:
|Look into its empty eyes and despair.|
I hope you, gentle reader, will appreciate the photo I took instead of trying to safe myself! Thankfully my life was spared, since the birds of Luzern are also known to be myopic - a boon to all ugly men, or so it is said. I wouldn't know about that aspect, of course, since I had only eyes for the lovely F.
|Luzern - lovely but lethal, at least for me.|
Whether she wanted to or not. Did she manage to strangle me? Tune in next time to find out!
