Back to summer

June 11

We arrived in Switzerland last night, and today Shawn and Fiona took us to France for a few hours. We took the gondola to the Aiguille du Midi from Chamonix to view the Alps and to get closer to the top of the Mont Blanc. The cable car takes about a half hour or you can hike up in two to three days. You can guess which option we took. It was minus 3C at the top, our first negative tempature since leaving Canada. We had some lunch, walked around town then headed back to Switzerland.
