It was interesting to watch the water spraying from the different machines and fountains.

I’ve posted this series of picture on facebook, but I thought I’d repeat it for those who don’t do facebook.  This monument is at the convergence of Switzerland, Germany, and France.

This bridge connects France and Germany.

We’ve had all this fun and we haven’t even gotten on the ship yet.  Our next installment will be a tour of the ship.
