Xiaoqin's flight left early in the morning. Piaw and I left some bags at the hotel, but now we were traveling with fully loaded bikes.
We took the train to St. Moritz (via Zürich and Chur) to spend a couple of days there hiking. The train ride reminded me how beautiful the Swiss greenery is.
We arrived in St. Moritz, ate a supermarket lunch, and biked to the youth hostel. The hostel was a super-modern dorm-like place that had just opened last year.
We took a walk through the woods in light rain to Pontresina, and took the train back. On the bus ride back from the train station we encountered a gaggle of Taiwanese tourists and their tourguide. The bus took us through a classy commercial district of St. Moritz that was very clearly too classy for me to even shop around in.
Dinner was served at the hostel cafeteria.
