July 6th: The last day in Switzerland: Watches and Cheese (ok not really)

This will have to be quick-- the day is still young.
Public transportation is great-- we traveled down the street to a local castle that dates back to the 11th century. A great day trip!
A torrential rainstorm broke out midway through our afternoon set at Montreux. We had to quit early because the wind blew water all over the recording equipment. A point of interest: In 1982, Neil's first One O'Clock trip to Europe, the same thing happened at Montreux. In fact, if you read the liner notes for the "Live at Montreux" albums, you can read about the lightening striking the recording tower (or something along those lines).
Here's to our last night in Switzerland-- we travel to France tomorrow morning-- I still wish that I spoke French
