Montreux Part Deux...

I've been running around like a chicken with its head cut off all day, but I wanted to get this post up before too long, so here it is: part deux of our day-trip to Montreux, Suisse and our tour of the 13th century castle: Chateau Chillon!!!

[View from the Great Room/Dining Room...]

[...which happened to be right next to the torture chamber...this box was in the torture chamber...]

[Obviously safe.]

[Part of the wall is a natural rock formation...]

[This is where they pour the hot oil if an intruder gets past the first part of the stone fortress...]

[A backwards clock...]

[View from the top of Chateau Chillon...]

[Swiss Alps over Lac Leman/Lake Geneva...]

When we had arrived at the castle it had begun raining more significantly than on our walk around the lake, however, once we were done our tour of Chateau Chillon it stopped raining and the sun even came out...

Chateau Chillon and Montreux, we will be seeing you again...

A la prochain friends...
