... Montreux Jazz festival is on so it was quite packed. We saw a few of the touristy things to see, like the Freddy Mercury statue and the Grand Swiss Hotel where Smoke on the Water was written and recorded.

It is an impressive city: the birth place of the Lumiere Brothers, the home of Louis Pasteur, a city of clocks and with some impressive Roman ruins.

But only 30€ for a single room and has wifi so it will do nicely. If the heating worked it would have been even better.
Had an interesting thought while walking along this morning. I have no idea what my PIN number is for my debit ...
