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.

is doing the work?   

Maybe he’s just the ballast!

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.
