More Swiss O week

Today we started at 2500metres from the Vorab cable car station. Middling results but at least Penny is recovered from her wasp stings.

The race started on the edge of a glacier and slowly descended through progressively more grassy terraces with lots of tarns, snow patches and rock detail.

We have a rest day tomorrow then three more days of O before we head to France for the world champs.

Thoughts on Switzerland, expensive, conservative, borderline unfriendly. Quite pretty of course. But what sort of place charges you 5 dollars to swim in a lake. We certainly have more freedom in Aotearoa.
