Might as well keep on posting these instalments as they come in!
A very hot day. Took train changing in Interlaken and Berne to Lausanne where we took the metro down to Lake Geneva at Ouchy. We spent 45 mins by the lake before boarding a paddle boat for a tour of the east end of the lake. We came ashore and came back via Brig. Just outside Visp Ron thought he saw an outside thermometer showing 40°!

And trains (plus a bus and trailer).
The BLS Metze train is at Interlaken Ost. Bus is in Lauterbrunnen. Rest taken at Montreux
Further to earlier emails weather has now broken. We are now in middle of thunderstorm with lots of wind and hail stones the size of pennies. Expect the storm to last for some time as they get stuck in the valley.
