You have to love Amanda's answer to their question:
From there we headed to the town of Gruyeres to go on a tour of the cheese factory. I sure learned a lot about making cheese. Gruyere is apparently one of the finest cheeses for baking and a great cheese for melting--used in fondues. I didn't know anything about the process so it was quite an interesting thing for me. I learned that cows consume 100 kg. of food and 80 litres of water.
Then it was time for lunch. Amanda knew about this cute little place.
To make sure I got in all my veggies for the day, we shared this yummy salad. They have the best "French" dressing--it is nothing like normal French dressing. It is green and we loved it. It is the only dressing I had on all the salads we had while we were there.
Walking around the town was so fun. (With all the chocolate I ate, I really should have RAN AROUND THE TOWN ; )
Amanda and Allan enjoying the view.
We then headed to Lausanne to go to the Olympic museum. I love the Olympics so this was a real treat for me.
The only thing that was disappointing was that I could not take photos inside. The displays were wonderful. They had the torches from the Olympics. It was fun to see the different styles--who'd of thought they were all so different. As well, all the medals. Again, so very different. I loved seeing all the uniforms, shoes, skis, hockey sticks, helmets, etc. Our time was limited but it would have been wonderful to have been able to go through it more slowly--to have been able to watch all the videos they showed and to have been able to read EVERYTHING.
We walked down to a little restaurant for dinner--it must seem like all we do is eat ; )
We had yummy crepes for dinner. I had a delicious mushroom and cheese crepe. It was HUGE and so tasty. Fortunately, Allan had a dessert crepe so he helped me finish mine. I decided to have a dessert crepe AFTER my meal. No, I didn't need ANY help finishing that ; )

It truly was a perfect day.
