Jin Dong in Switzerland - 16th March 2016
Dear Squeeglets, it is very much uncertain I can skip work tomorrow to go see Jin Dong because of some other commitments, which is of course DAMN %&?!%&* unfortunate, but part of the thing called Real Life or Adulting. In any case, my weibo-literate friends are busy supplying me with Jin Dong in Switzerland pictures, which gives me warm-fuzzy feels, because it's just like that time I picture-stalked Lee Jun-ki when he was in Switzerland. Fond memories. And this is what we got from weibo:
He is somewhere mountainous but not TOO mountainous (because there are still pine trees ... they don't grow above approximately 2500 meters above sea-level here in the Alps). There are skiing slopes there (the blue sign tells you when the last check of the pists are done). There also is - and that tipped me of!! - some kind of construction to do climbing. The geo position said "Lucerne" so this must be in the vicinity.
Pilatus. We don't know whether he went to the top (there is no proof :) but we know he went to the "Fräkmuntegg", on 1416 meters above sea-level. What we see in front is part of the Pilatus rope park. This is the restaurant when it's not snowing:
And this is the gondola he had to take to get up there. Not un-scary in bad weather :D
Then, we have a second set of pics from this morning. They were very easy to geo-locate because I've been there myself (and even though I first thought he might have gone to "Brunnen" at the other end of the lake, the non-mountainous background gave it away). This is in Lucerne, in front of one of the famous *****-hotels (The Hotel Palace). It's lovely! I hope he is staying there. And doesn't need to pay for it himself, because a room is 400 Swiss Francs and up.
Here, I even found the bench that Big Bro was sitting on ...
