It's cold this morning and Beanie has zero interest in getting out of bed. He's just watching us as we get ready for work.

It's Beanie's favourite time of year: space heater season!

We used the brand-new Sydney Metro to get there and back (well, part of the way since they terminate at Chatswood), the trains are automated and driverless so you can stand at the very front of the train and look directly out the front window to watch yourself zooming through the tunnels! It honestly felt like we were in a city other than Sydney, because until now we've only had the massive double-decker trains.

We went to see Underworld play at the Sydney Opera House last night, and it seriously ruled. I only have three of their albums but recognised about half of the songs, and the light show was incredible!

I was poking through my parents’ box of camera gear, and right at the bottom was this beastly bit of kit, complete with a 32MB CF card in it!

More art! I called this one “The Emergence”, very much inspired by the Hive from Destiny.

Finally got back to doing some art! I bought a massive set of brushes and palettes, and found some fun ones. The top/background of this was meant to be towering craggy mountains and I could only see it as such, but when I showed Kristina she said “Oh that’s a cool sky!” and now my brain keeps flipping between the two!

We, uh, may have bought a bit of chocolate while we were in Switzerland.

(To be fair, not all of it is just for us).

Today we walked around Lucerne some more, and went inside a ridiculous church (one of several, though I only took a photo on my phone of this one).

Today we relocated base to Lucern! Unfortunately the AirBnB we’re staying at is significantly shittier in terms of kitchen equipment, lacking in basic things. On the bright side we visited the Swiss Transport Museum which was very cool.

We also visited the H. R. Geiger museum (in which you're not allowed to take photos which made me sad but was nonetheless fucking cool), and neighbouring bar.

We also had THE FANCIEST grilled cheese on toast I've ever seen. (Yes, the bread is under all that cheese, as is a bunch of ham as well, and the bread was clearly fried in a pan). It was goddamned DELICIOUS.

Today we went to Gruyères and saw a 13th century castle, Chateau de Gruyères! It was very impressive, and had been added onto and modified all the way into the early 20th century.

Today we went to Lauterbrunnen and Mürren and saw EPIC mountains, then had a giant wad of raclette cheese for lunch!

Well, that's a thing you can get here apparently. Though I looked at the ingredients and it says "Hemp extract 0.1g/L" so I really doubt it's going to having much of an effect. :P
