... trek through the Alps. We rode the Funicular to the top and Matt needed a breakfast of substance - man oh man can the Swiss create a hearty breakfast - eggs, bacon on a giant latka. Then we were off for 10 km walk through the mountains. Its hard to capture the view we saw but some of the pictures should help. We dined on take-away pizza and I soaked in the ...

... was full of mainly locals and a few tourists. The menu was only in Italian but the waiter was able to help us decide what to have. We shared a Caprese salad and I have never seen mozzarella pulled this way. Instead of a ball it was a hollow circle and beautifully soft and creamy inside the outer layer. Just delicious!
