Boats..Fishing…and More…

Thursday 10th July

Lost track on which day of the trip it is….but it does not really matter…does it….!? …All that matters is that it was yet another fun day….:)

It started with a walk to an walk to a historical site Hohle Gasse http://www.hohlegasse.ch/hp/index_de.html  which was interting…this was followed by a tour of a museum which spoke about the history of the town Küssnacht-Rigi …the museum was specially opened for us in the morning instead of the afternoon so we could visit…now is that royal treatment or what….museums are specially opened because guests from India want to visit them!!

We then went to a lunch meeting with the RotaryClub Küssnacht-Rigi-Meggen…nice club….nice meeting…standard presention…..

The fun started after the meeting…it was time to go explore the lake…..we went boating in a little motor boat….and it was a blast…..i sat on the tip of the boat in the front while the others were inside on the seats…..the wind in the face…the water under your feet…the view of the alps…..oh…..it was heavenly…..you actully feel closer to god…..

We all  got wet with the waves splashing on us…and then sat on the deck under to sun to get all dried up…..there were strong southern winds blowing over the mountains into the lake..on certain parts of the lake the winds were of the speed of hurricans……was absolutly amazing……we had a rotarin with tremendous experience on the lake so we were safe and reached the harbour to go our the next event of the evening…the FISHING!!

Yeah….i went fishing for the first time…and caught 4 fish…!! Not bad eh for a beginer…..well we went fishing in a fish farm….not the actual lake…i would never have the patience to fo fishing in an actual lake…it was a pity to see the fish die….but was fun to feel…yeah i managed to bait the fish and pull it up at the right time!!!

After the fishing….i even tried eating the fish….obvisouly after it was cooked……though the fish was quite tasty…..it tasted like cottage cheese…not fishy at all…..if fish always tastes like that i think i am going to convert from an eggitarian to a fishitarian….!!

After the fishing and the dinner….we drove to Montana….a four start hotel in Lucernce overlooking the lake……we went up to the terrace to have some red wine and enjoy the wind….it continued to be an extremely windy and stormy day…thank god the winds did not bring the rains…! In Montanna again…the open terrace was closed because of heavy wind…..but it was opened for us….the special guests from India! The guy serving us was extremly handsome and spoke impeccable english…..unlike a lot of swiss…..making conversation with him we got to know that he has gone to oxford to study english for 3 months….how cool is that….so we had one bottle of Argentinian red wine…or was it italian….ah…who cares…does not matter…all that matters is that it was good…!

We then went into the bar…where there was a live jaaz band…..some of us had water with bubbles…for some of the others the wine was not enough…so they  had some beer…..we then went to another bar….in national hotel…again on the lake side….we walked in looked at it and decided to go back home……were super tired….was 11.30 in the night……we were out from 9 in the morning…..having fun…experinecing new things…..and we had an interesting day ahead…had to be up at 6.30 in the morning to go to the snow mountains…..aaaahhh…what a day…and what a wonderful day to look forward to tomorrow…….gn….
