Interlacken – continued

I forgot to mention that when we got off the train in Switzerland that we had to get Swiss francs. Now we have British pounds, Euros and Swiss francs.
Also it was 40 degrees on the mountain today, so we got out our cold weather clothes for the trip to the top of the Jungfrau.
To answer some questions-
Yes we did get to see the inside of the cathedral in Strasbourg. It is amazing what was built in the 12th and 13th centuries without technology. The stonework on that church is very intricate and we can’t imagine how long it must have taken to do all that carving.
Schengen countries is complicated. The easiest way to find out what they are is go to the State Dept’s website. Croatia joined ( we think) the schengen countries a few days ago which may mean we will have to alter our plans. We went to the American Embassy for clarification and they were very helpful. We still have not decided what we will do to fix our problem. This is nothing too serious, we just have to be a little flexible.

    I was gone a few days and your were in Germany and now you’ve been through two countries. Strasbourg was nice but the mountains in Interlaken are just gorgeous. I loved the cheese fondu dishes. They made me very hungry. The trains are unbelievable nice. It is really so nice to see a lot of the things your experiencing so thanks. I don’t know how your dealing with the language differences but obviously your doing fine? On the home front Keri passed her boards Thursday so now she’s an official Nurse Practioner.
    Otherwise it very hot. Keep on enjoying the experience.
