A day in Zurich

90% chance I'm coming home.

sunny 18 °C

The city is pretty small. I’ve been able to walk instead of using the trolley system. Apparently the Swiss don’t invest in street signs, but I get by. Today I visited the Swiss National Museum, lake Zurich, and Zurich University. Very few people speak English fluently. Most people speak German. However there are also people that speak French and Italian. All information literature is in German, English, Italian and French.

It’s not dark until about 9pm. I’m not exactly used to that. My hotel is situated between the Limmat river, the train station, and the university. It’s great for exploring the city. Most of the people in the local coffee shops and pubs are college students. I liked Zurich, but ready for the next destination Rome. I depart tomorrow at 07:40am. I’ve finally figured out how to insert photos today I included a picture of Lake Zurich, The skyline from Zurich University, the Swiss National Museum, and a picture of the main university building.
