... with colored sand, flowers, and fruit. The villagers, young and old, were busy working their way down the street creating the designs as they went. It was highly impressive. After admiring the artwork, I ran over to the station to just catch the train to neighboring Vernazza.

... Gletscher (lower Grindelwald glacier). After a short lunch and geography lesson on glaciation from Mr. Oates we set back down the path towards the luge. After about five runs each (with a fastest time of 54.5 seconds set by yours truly) we took the cable car back down into town and spent the rest of the day chilling at the hostel playing table tennis or shopping in town. It was pretty ...
