Kiwis in Lauterbrunnen

Simon and Anita stormed into Lauterbrunnen yesterday as part of their 49 day all-you-can-eat Europe tour. I caught up with them briefly in the evening and then again today. We decided to be ueber tourists and paid the highly excessive 146 Swiss Francs (inclusive of group discount) to get the train up to the Jungfraujoch at the “Top of Europe” (as they so often liked to remind us – perhaps so that we didn’t revolt at the exorbitant price we had paid).
