Today I attend the 44th Annual Montreux Jazz Festival!
Montreux is the best-known resort on Lac Léman (Lake Geneva), thanks to a sunny climate, a lovely setting, and a busy schedule of cultural events and conferences throughout the year.
The town has long been popular with celebrity musicians and writers, including Tchaikovski, Stravinski, Byron, Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, and--more recently--Vladimir Nabokov, who spent the last two decades of his life at the Montreux Palace Hotel after his novel, Lolita, earned international success in the mid-1950s.
This is Yuriko's camera... I took a picture of it because I want one! (hint, hint, Mardis, lol!)
Preparing for the trip to Montreux! :)
H & M in Montreux
The Banque (bank)
I took a picture of these mannequins inside of C & A because I was confused...
Then, I asked questions...
Finally, I thought this was too much! :) I am still not sure if this is a Swiss style for men yet. ;)
An entire town on a mountain!
Lake Geneva in Montreux, where the festival was held.
The most beautiful, clear water I have ever seen...
A McDonald's "ATM"... You just walk up and order! :)
"I'm not scared..."
"Yes, I am!!"

Making a custom bracelet (since I can never find my name already created on products, lol!)
The best ice cream I have ever had!! Swiss ice cream is extra creamy and the cone... magnifique!
