After a surprisingly relaxed flight, thanks to a dose of prescription drugs, I’m slowly recovering from jetlag with ample Swiss cheese, wine and chocolat. We landed in Zurich yesterday morning, and after a coffee and a shower at N’s mom’s flat, went into town to hit the H&M sale and buy some maps for our hiking trip. She and her husband live in a gorgeous old building that handily houses the school he teaches at. From their place it’s a short hop on one of Zurich’s many regular trams into the town center, and it was comforting to see how familiar the places looked. Bittersweet, too, for we learned that his mom’s looking to leave Switzerland to be closer to family, so our regular trips to visit her may not come as regularly. Quelle tristesse.
A few photos from the Chasseral, as promised earlier.
