|flowers in Lucerne|
Here are photos (and a video) of the the Swiss mountains around Lucerne. Look how green. The area is incredibly tranquil and quiet, and has a calming effect on the soul as opposed to the hustle and bustle of the big cities of the world.

On the whole the area is beautiful and well worth seeing for a day or two.
