Architecture Tour….Swiss Bank….Chocolates…

Friday 17th June 2010

The day started with an architecture  tour of the city of Lugano….we saw  some construction sites…..a modern building by Gian Piero Camponovo….I am not into architecture…but the building was beautiful….there was a fountain which had alphabets coming out of it…

We then went to HSBC bank for a presentation about swiss banking….no comments would be the best thing I can say about the session….the lunch was with the bank…and that was nice….Risoto with Saffron….in the Italian part….we eat..either pasta…Piiza…or Risoto…since I like Italian food…life is good…but today is the last day in Italian part of the country….

Then we went to the chocolate factory…saw how they make it….would have ideally liked to have someone explain the process….but life is not always ideal….

The was time to buy chocolates….bought some nice fancy chocolates with resins and biscuits….bough like 1 kg of chocolates…and that is not too much I wanted to get more…but how much can one carry back home!!

Dinner was interesting…with Lasania…was similar to what we get in India….and then for the first time we came back home before the sun set….that is also not too early…the sun sets here at 10 in the night….so it was another long day….tomorrow it is time to pack bags and go to the next city…Einsiden….and our host families here we come!

    Hi. You keep mixing up the dates at the header of your blog. There is already a June 17; so this must have been June 18, if you went visiting on a Friday. I don’nt blame you, as one tends to loose time of days and dates on a holiday; and your’s is a jam packed activity based holiday. Did’nt you hear of any discussions on the Swiss football win in the World cup?
