this past saturday, erik (visiting from penn state) and i decided to check out the rhinefall, which is a waterfall about 45 min away from zurich by train, very close to the german border, in schaffhausen. we took the train there and then a bus from schaffhausen to neuhausen, where the falls are.
the waterfall itself was pretty nice - no niagara or anything - but still worth seeing (supposed to be the biggest waterfall in europe). it was a really nice, sunny day and we were able to walk around and also hike up and check out the castle nearby (schloss laufen). there were lots of tourists around, especially a lot of indians. i guess this is the norm because there was even an indian food stall set up and run by a rajastani guy. i bought a samosa, took a bite, and found that it was frozen inside! i took it back and the guy warmed it up in the microwave. not surprised in the least.
