Switzerland: It's Pretty! [Jan. 18th, 2008|01:56 am]

Zurich is beautiful - but even better, I hardly got rained on, and the temperature was above zero! I even saw a bit of blue sky. Rain has been following me around the world. I got wet in Singapore and Brisbane, and when I was in Dubai between flights, I never did see the sun.














Much Campari was served on the flights to and from Zurich.

I have always wanted to visit Switzerland. I love their ideas on preparedness, neutrality, and survival.

It seems like just an overall highly civilized place, full of conscientious people. I liked it!

The third picture is my favorite. The centers of old European cities are so much fun to explore.

Funny, I almost deleted it. When I woke up, one of my first thoughts was "I have too many pictures on that post. I'll delete the one of curvy street." I'm sure not going to delete it now!

It reminded me of this old picture I have from Nürnberg in an post I made long before you started reading my journal. (Except your shot is prettier, better framed, and more colorful.) Nürnberg was a place I greatly (and unexpectedly) enjoyed visiting, so your picture had made for some very happy associations.

amazing as always!

I'm really loving that 3rd picture (well, I'm loving them all... but the 3rd one especially)!

Thanks! =) I liked that 3rd picture because the background was brighter than the foreground, which I thought was sort of the opposite of what the eye would expect. But like I said to dubaiwalla, I almost deleted it until I saw you and he both commented about it. I thought it wasn't as interesting as the other pictures. Shows what I know!

As usual, nice pics. :)

Thank you for posting pictures of Zurich. When I visited, it was in the days of no digital cameras! That abominal situation was not rectified for another year or so!

(though perhaps now that i earn my own moolah i could invest in a scanner. i think they're cheap.)
