IACE 2019 – Day 6
Today was also a GREAT day! Luckily, we were all able to have a well-deserved lie in and having a later yet scrumptious breakfast at 9 o’clock. After our tanks were filled, we then headed to Pontresina. We listened to a classical music concert by the Camerata Pontresina where competitions such as those by Mozart and Strauss were played. Later, we caught the train to Alp Grüm where we hiked down the mountain to Cavaglia with Thierry leading the way. We were treated to picturesque views on our descent, somewhat of a trend in Switzerland. We stopped for lunch and then proceeded to our final destination, the boreholes! These are glacial landforms created due to the circular motion of rocks carried in the water. We then took the train to Surovas, where we hiked to Pontresina and had dinner at a restaurant – the food was fantastic! We are all very excited to see what tomorrow brings!
