|At the top of the mountain- with Anne-Sophie and Johann- who has a rock. Lol|

So trains.... I spent a lot of time on various trains above and below the ground on this trip. It was for the most part an enjoyable experience. I guess the only not that enjoyable part was later on but you will hear about that soon. I was sort of giddy traveling up that mountain, smiling at and talking to (listening to) Johann, looking out the windows at the houses and buildings and scenery, chatting about some information about where we were going.... I don't get at all worried about the height when I am in a train, so that ramps up my enjoyment levels a lot. I think train travel is underused here in the US, but you know us. We like our cars! This train was super clean and on time and well, very Swiss precision. My impression of Switzerland and Germany is how really very clean looking it is, especially where I was. And it is nice to be able to read some of the signage. (Sorry Italy, I'm trying but your language is not as easy to learn for me).
|This was my view for lunch on Friday the 15 of June, and I think it was pretty freaking spectacular.|
|A salad that included various veggies that I loved and that stick was indeed bread- a lovely plate, no? And we did have some ice cream some where along the way this day as well.|
After spending a few hours up there, we took that train back down again and then we went into the city. All the while Anne was pointing out places like the Starbucks she used to go to, and other locations that she knew around Zürich. We walked to a river and saw swans on it, many tourists walking around getting tours, some SUPER amazing architecture and many other things I'm sure I am forgetting about.
|Look at these colors... and look- swans! Limmat River|
|These buildings were so cool. The architecture is divine.|
|An interesting balcony on a corner downtown- those torsos stopped me in my tracks|
|The metal work on this door was so interesting, not to mention the doorknob placement|
|Selfie on the dock!|
|LOOK YOU GUYS!!! You can see the Alps WAY BACK THERE- on the left|
|I would like to be living up on the top and be out in those roof top gardens|
|One of my favorite unexpected things was this broken accordion- I stopped in my tracks and went back to shoot it.|
