As I had company, I decided to stay an extra day in Lausanne and be a tourist. There’s not a tremendous amount to see (the self-guided tour on the free map takes around 20 minutes if you don’t stop to take too many photos) but it’s pleasant enough. The only real downside is that it’s built on probably the only hill in the entire area!
We walked the loop, saw the cathedral and some other old buildings and then headed for the beach… which turned out to be both artificial and expensive to get into. Instead, we wandered along the road a ways and I sunbathed while James sploshed into the lake.
Overall, a relaxing day and something I should do more often on the walk.
