Welcome to the giant diary update for the past couple of weeks! We've found a £2 for 24 hours deal - should be able to get most of them done in that time ;) Just to remind everyone (including ourselves), we're currently in Gryon, just about to leave. Got up relatively early (i.e - morning) and caught the bus down the mountain. Left our bags in the lockers at Montreaux train station, then caught a much smaller train out to Chateau Chillon - a very cool castle with a useful printed guide available in lots of languages. The couple before us said they'd be happy to have it in any of about 4 languages - very jealous of people who can read all that! The castle is on a rock outcrop (an island really) in Lake Geneva, with views up a steep mountain-side (complete with lots of roads these days) on one side, and over the lake to the mountains of France on the other side. It was once used to collect tolls from the road along the side of the lake. Somewhere on the trains I lost Kate's France book - am still getting shit for this. I don't have a clue how I lost it, because I was sure I either put it back in my bag or handed it to Kate - but she doesn't remember getting it. Anyway, made it to Geneva, where we found the hostel and saw Little Johnie on the TV - talking about Bali. We hadn't heard about it yet. Had felafel for dinner. Our room-mate was back very late (3 bed dorms are very civilised after some of the places we've stayed!) but was quiet and well behaved. Yay for good room-mates.
