« Part 2: Swiss Doors! Part 3 of Swiss Trip series Part 4: Swiss woodwork and joinery »

After about half of the tour it hit me at how much different the architecture was in Switzerland than here in the good old USA.

When I sat back and really thought about it Switzerland is around 500 years older than us and they shouldn’t be like us.

That kind’a looks like my home town – Not.

So how was the chocolate?

I’m glad that you got to go Roger, and that your wife had a shopping great time.

Karson, I’m not the chocolate eater in the family but my wife sure was in seventh heaven. LOL! We did visit a chocolate factory while there.

Lee, Wayne’s trip is worth every penny spent unless you want to explore the country on your own, which I wouldn’t suggest.

Theresa, the clock is in Bern and is called the Zytglogge. It has a musical mechanism that works at the top of the hour.

Those pictures are absolutely beautiful – especially the one with the mountain in the distance. Is that the Matahorn?

Only at one point in our tour did we get just a short glimps of the Matahorn.

Nice photos of the architecture. Even more interesting to me are the different people you see and meet when you are on vacation.

Surely these buildings are some of the most beautiful ones on earth.
