After a train ride most of the way

up Lucerne’s Mt. Rigi…

 

…there was still a steep ascent/descent

to attain its summit and return.

In my pre-teen years,

a fireman I never wanted to be,

I wanted to be an archeologist.

So when  Pompeii was on our itinerary,

it would have taken a deluge

akin to the one that hit New York this week…

…to stop me from walking around the Pompeii ruins.

 

I think imminent wet weather may have

curtailed our guided tour

However, the worst of the rain held off

until we completed our inspection.

Perhaps not quite a Sculpture again this week,

but interesting just the same.

*****

 

A stone from Mt Emei in China sits

on top of Switzerland’s Mt Rigi…

…signifying the formation of a sister relationship

between the two mountains in 2009…

….located in China’s Sichuan Province and

Switzerland’s Cantons of Schwyz and Lucerne.

The stone exchange is a strong symbol designed

to strengthen the partnership between

Mt. Rigi and Mt. Emei.

I’m not sure why…

…mankind deems it necessary to endure strenuous walks

while carrying backpacks, when on vacation.

I do know why…I think.

Where else are we going to put our cameras,

medications of all varieties,

the wet weather/cold weather gear,

sunscreens, spare glasses,

bottle of water and so on??

 

Whether a long holiday,

a long weekend

or simply a day out in the sun…

 

 

..relaxing on and around Lake Lucerne

seems an ideal way to take a break.
