Incident at Luzern
The pedestrian bridge over the Reuss River in Luzern. This is a favorite spot for the swans to gather for handouts from the tourists. Back in 2002 Eleanor was standing at the entrance to this bridge, when some Italian tourists exited a parked car and started crossing the street. They spotted some people they obviously knew. The resulting scene was like that out of a movie. They all ran together in the middle of the street, hugged each other and shouted Italian words like "paesan", "amore" or any other words you would say to loved ones not seen in a long time. As Eleanor was enjoying this scene, an elderly lady passing by heard the commotion, shook her head and said "Amerikaner!" Eleanor couldn't help but smile.
