Today we had a relatively quiet day. Laura was up all night coughing although after changing sides of the caravan, she slept alot better in my bed. We had breakfast and then made some phone calls home as the "swisscom'' phonebooths were quite cheap.
Afterwards we hung around and did 2 loads of washing which seemed to take forever. Whilst waiting for the washing I sat down and watched a little more football on the communal tv whilst Laura laid in bed to rest her cold.
After completing our washing we walked into town to do some souvenior shopping. Following this we headed for Trummelbach Falls.
The Trummelbach Falls are a series of ten glacier-waterfalls inside the mountain made accessible by tunnel-lift. The Trummelbach alone drains the mighty glacier defiles of Eiger (3970 m), Monk (4099 m) and Jungfrau (4158 m) and carries 20.200 tons of boulder detritus per year. Its drainage area is 24 km⊃2;, half of it covered by snow and glaciers. Up to 20.000 litres of water per second. The only glacier-waterfalls in Europe inside the mountain and still accessible.
Once we got to the falls we made our way up using the lift to the base of the fourth from top waterfall. We weaved our way up the paths which lead up into the mountain. The pressure of the water was just unbelievable. Every second that you spend in the mountain looking at the water running through you felt that the mountain could explode at any second.
Eventually we made our way back down and made the half hour walk back to the campsite where we had decided to buy dinner at the local restaurant. Laura had some Gulasch and Garlic Bread whilst I managed to struggle through a Hamburger and Fries. Afterwards Laura was feeling a little tired so I did a few little jobs like dry the washing, write some postcards, pay the bill, buy some snacks and get ready for tommorrows journey to Nice. Apparantly it is quite a journey.
