A Day in Zurich, Switzerland

Hello Europe. I was blissed out to arrive in Zurich after India; so clean and tidy, garbage cans, cool air, not packed public transit that is incredibly well organized and easy to use, fresh bread and cheese!! I could go on and on about the amenities that I was happy to have back in my life. Zurich is quite a lovely city to transition to as well. Even if I was freezing as the temperature drop was drastic from Delhi to Zurich in May, I was happy to put on all my layers.
I stayed my one night at a Eliane’s friends place. Eliane and I met in India. Although she was not in Switzerland when I was there she got in touch with her friend Ramon and he was up for hosting me at his old farm house in Zurich. I really enjoyed Ramon and his fellow flatmates, they were all very nice. I was even more stoked when Ramon made fresh veggie lasagna and salad for dinner. Mm mm! Thank you Eliane & Ramon! 
I had a lovely breakfast with Ramon’s flatmates before heading off to meet Adrienne at the train station. After travelling solo for a couple weeks I was elated to start my adventure with my good friend & old SF roomie for the next week. We decided since the weather wasn’t quite on our side we’d meander and eat our way through Zurich – a lot of chocolate and cheese were in our diet that day. After our nice day exploring Zurich we headed to catch our overnight train to Zagreb, Croatia. Leaving one Z town for another…

My first time ever eating an egg from a stand. I thought it was unusual but the more I talked to others they'd had it before. Either way I really liked it!
