April 28 blog
Today started like every other day. We woke up, had breakfast, and boarded the bus. We traveled to Luzern, and went to mountain Pilatus. We took two different gondolas up the mountain and it took approximately half an hour all together. All we did when we got up the mountain was explore and buy hoodies. After we got back down everyone got on the bus and headed into the city of Luzern. We went to swan square which was named after all the swans in lake Luzern. We had a tiny walking tour around the city and our lovely tour guide told us stories and tales from centuries ago. We saw the area where the old gate to the city was, the oldest clock in Luzern, and the Chapel bridge. We also got to learn about the torture chamber and the other bridge which tells the story of the plague. After our short walking tour everyone got free time for about two hours.
Around 3:30pm we headed off to the chocolate factory and museum. I personally don’t know what was in the museum because we only picked the chocolate tour. We learned how chocolate is made and how they make the different kinds. We also learned how the development of chocolate making/ machines used to make the chocolate changed over time. After learning about chocolate we had free time till 5:45. Later we went to the famous lion monument, after we saw that we traveled to the hotel and had supper. Shortly after supper we had a performance of old fashion Swiss music and instruments. That was our day.
