Aug. 18/28 (Saturday)
[[underline]]Luzern[[/underline]] (sunny)
Left by train at 9:03 A.M. arrived at Meirengen at about 11 A.M. from where we took a tram to the gorge of the Aar, a beautiful narrow gorge where one walks along the edge of the edge of the rock. Then took a tram back to the Reicheback [[Reichenbach]] falls. The spray was so great that it was impossible to look at it from below. The long drop of the foamy water was perfectly fascinating to me. Then we took the train to Briez, seven

miles further on, from where a boat carried us to the other end of the lake of Thune where we went up a river a short distance to Interlaken. After a fine dinner at this nice hotel overlooking the river Aar and the Jungfrau, we strolled about the town, looking in the attractive shop windows.

(The trip from Luzern to Briez was partly over the Brunig pass which afforded fine mountain scenery.)
The Jungfrau is beautiful 

Transcription Notes:
