DAY 31 - 11.7.2006

We had to wake up at 9am, although I would have wanted to stay in that bed for the whole day:) Birgit had to leave 10.15 to a train station, and we were giving her a lift. After saying goodbye to Birgit we were on our way to Zürich's airport. We would once again get a new addition to our road trip team. This time it wasn't a 2 meter high freak of nature, but a 1.5 meter high little man:) Arttu's little brother's plane was arriving at 12.10pm.

Once we got Little Lauri in our car, we headed south to Luzern. Luzern is a city of 60 000 inhabitants and very famous tourist destination as it is a classical Swiss town. We parked our car few kilometres from the city centre and started our sightseeing tour from there. Immediately I got a strong allergic reaction from something there, but I didn't bother to find out what was causing it. Like in Zürich there was also a mountain lake next to Luzern. The water was once again very clear, but we managed to resist it. The old town of Luzern was pretty, but it didn't take long to explore it. One of Luzern's most famous sights is Mount Pilatus. We were hoping to get good photos of it during sunset. So we found a nice park along the lake to wait for the evening.

Once again we managed to avoid paying high internet prices as I found a free wlan spot. We checked our emails and posted four days to my blog. I think the city of Luzern was providing that internet access as the name of the connection was Luzern.wlan. And that's how it is supposed to be!

The sunset didn't colour Mount Pilatus as we were hoping for, so we returned to our car. We drove to a bit safer place to have a peaceful sleep.
