PPF in Europe 2018 - Part Thirteen: Crossing Another Border

Yeah that church in Milan, what's the name again?

A quick stop in Milan for one night--pizza and the Duomo in the afternoon, a stroll along Corso Buenos Aires with a gelato--and we soldiered on to the final stop of this trip. Lucerneis another repeat visit for me. I can still remember how much I loved it the first time I came here--the calm lake, the nearly perfectly preserved Old Town, and the chill (and chilly!) laidback air.

What I don't remember is how expensive everything is here. And because this is the last leg, everybody's feeling the pinch. The hotel we booked i also the least, er, impressive. But at least we have a trip up tp Mount Titlis to look forward to tomorrow.

Gotta have my gelato 

Kapelbrücke, or Chapel Bridge, in Lucerne

We walked around for a bit after dinner at the main train station this evening. The air is only starting to get fingertips-numbing cold, but most of us like it. Sure beats armpit-waterfalls heat in Manila.

The Chapel Bridge is still there and the Old Town looks and feels familiar. Cecille said she thinks the city is soulful and I'm inclined to agree. I'm happy we decided to stay here instead of in Zurich.
