... next adventure, a cog railway up to a glacier. One that used to be so big it was known as the La Mer de Glacé (Sea of ice). Unfortunately those days were long gone. There were markers along the walk down to the glacier that showed its size in years gone by. It has really shrunk in the last decade, which was quite saddening. The route to the glacier involved the cog railway, then a cable car, then 200 steps. Inside the ...

... inside were all booked out, but we think we saw some hadrons... We were interested to find out that the 27km circumference underground tunnel doesn't go under the mountains at all - just under the countryside near Geneva. Apparently it's 100m below the ground! We found ourselves standing above the Atlas detector. We enjoyed reading and hearing about how they use the accelerator to re-create the high-energy environment shortly after the ...

It was after 6pm and we had had enough of this brutal day of riding. This is a very popular campsite, we have already run into some fellow Aussies here (for the jazz festival), but there are heaps of tents up. Yet this would have to be one of the worst campsite I've been to. Hot showers cost 1 Franc for 4 minutes. For that, Susan got 100% hot, ...

... a house on fire. There were some epic FIFA battles and more beer and wine than is healthy. Then before we headed to 'the fish', which I was reliably informed is, where everything happens. On the way out the door, Bryan poured a lot of Jack and a little coke into a glass and decreed that I needed to drink this. I only mention all of this to allow you some idea about why we did any of the things that came after... So off we went. Straight into the back of a taxi and to the ...
