Our second day in Zurich was a much greater success that our first day. Â Not that we didn’t have a great day yesterday, but today we were pleasantly surprised to find a beautiful sunny day awaiting us. Â We spent a lot of yesterday in museums and cafes in order to stay out of the rain, but today was a dry and warm day (at least for January) in Zurich.
We are here for our first day in ZÃ¼rich, Schweiz — or in English; Zurich, Switzerland. Â We took the train on Friday evening to arrive here. Â We are staying out in the University area, as the hotels are much more affordable in this part of town. Â We had a great first night, with take-away pizza and The Lone Ranger movie in bed. Â As you might have guessed by the title of this post, we have noticed that the Swiss have lots of money, and not only in their banks. Â Just to give you an idea of how expensive things are here in Zurich; we paid about $50 US dollars for a pizza and side salad. Â No kidding. Â Outside of things being very expensive, we have noticed that the city is stunningly beautiful and clean. Â The city has an old look to it, which doesn’t appear to be recreated after WWII. Â The city also has a new look to it, making it a modern and chic city to live in.
