My friend Willow from Honolulu is back in town! And as every time I am taking her to a different place in Switzerland. This time I chose one of the towns every "Europe in 5 days" tour is taking its tourists to: Lucerne in the heart of Switzerland. And we totally get why: Besides being the location of countless Bollywood dance scenes it's also really pretty.
We were also lucky with the weather, it was sunny and unusually mild for mid-December, so we mostly walked around outside. We did however visit a wonderful antiques shop on our way into town.
There were 2 of these chandelier holding dancer statues and I now want them - and a big villa to put them inside!
It's the red coat army!
One of many lovely buildings
Christmas decorations everywhere!
River birds in the clear water
On the world famous Kappeler bridge
As a bonus, all the walls are covered in mirror mosaics.
After lunch: walk upwards!
In one of the many souvenir shops: a range of Swiss army knives.
The lion monument - it's actually rather big!
Walking around the streets of the old town
On the Christmas market
