Here's to our blurry night shots of our walk into the city, around and back. Can you tell the morning shots from the nighttime photos?
We stayed at Hotel Otter, entrance via a pub. Lots of young people sipping wine and sharing stories. Chaz was mesmerized.
We wandered down some streets and chose tarte flambée restaurant (Cafe Henrici) Bubbling atmosphere, shared tables. Incredibly nice, casual and helpful servers. Swiss are happy people! We took the only seats at a large round table. I think the girls may have preferred if we were a group of handsome and witty male travelers...that's what I would hope for, sharing a table and all.
We were across the street from a candy store. The only store that was open and that my child had spotted and ran to after dinner. This must have been what kept him motivated, to remain awake throughout dinner.
We managed to wake up at 6:30 and get out the door by 7. Since it was still dark and foggy we skipped the walk to the "beach" where one can view the Alps in the distance. We hopped on our train just as it was leaving. Went to the second floor and stumbled through 2-3 more cars aiming to get to 2nd class seats, round trip tickets we had purchased the night before. When we hit the dining car, we decided to stop and sit for the remaining 5 minutes of the ride.
p.s. all the photos were taken in the morning.
p.p.s. Swiss people and the city ambiance are very relaxed and joyful.
