Drove to Lucerne and played tourist there. Saw the old mill covered bridge and the Dance of Death murals on the Lions Monument. After Lucerne we drove back to Zurich to see the Rapperswil at the opposite end of the lake from Zurich. There we stayed under the bleachers of an ice hockey stadium Just a wee bit chilly.
