My last post was getting way too long, and I still have some pictures from that first day in Zurich that I want to show you.
our tour of the city, the sun decided to come out properly, and we
walked along the lake. Lake Zurich has the city come right up and there
are high mountains (the Swiss Alps) close by, making for a fantastic
backdrop, as you will see. Thankfully, the city planners have left
enough green for people to enjoy walking, cycling and running along the
shore, and we really enjoyed our leisurely stroll.
This house - formerly a private house, now a museum - reminded me very much of a lot of the buildings in Harrogate:
Look at the sky now! What a difference to the morning... This is the Opera House. On the square in front of it, we had an Apérol Spritz each. I'm afraid it was not very good, though, and definitely the most expensive one I've ever had - but that's Zurich for you. It still was a good way to end our first day there.
The angel is for you, Mum:
