The basilica has had to be rebuilt a few times owing to rockfalls from the mountain behind it, but I was reassured that it ...

... were also very cool to hang out with.

After dinner we got ready to head out to our first Montreux Jazz Festival performance. Holly wasn’t coming to this one as she didn’t know any of the people playing so we made sure she had a way to get home and from there Adam and I headed into the town and into the main venue.
