Before going to Switzerland the only thing I knew about Montreaux was that they had a jazz festival there. It is situated on Lake Geneva at the foot of the Alps.
I had never heard of Freddie Mercury. I know. You wonder what rock I was living under. He is worshiped here as the flowers at this life-sized statue attest.
I have to say that once I got home I saw two documentaries on Freddie and Queen. The musical "We will Rock You" just finished playing at the Fisher Theatre in Detroit. I now own a CD of his titled 'Barcelona' that also features opera singer Montserrat Caballe. Here is a video of him and Montserrat performing together:
The promenade along the Lake is filled with wonderful little eateries and art work. Enjoy the views.
This was day two.
