Flag of Switzerland  , Canton of Zurich,
Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Arrived in Zurich, Switzerland after a loooong mostly sleepless flight from Chicago, USA. We are figuring our the train system, which language to try and butcher here (German? French??), and trying to take in as many sights and experiences before we crash.

At first glance we were not enthusiastic about our short day/night in Zurich, as it seemed to be just like any other big city to us. However, once we found our hostel in the middle of an area with an old town feeling and cobblestone streets we realized this place is unbelievably beautiful and full of life and originality.

Some interesting things:

1. None of us remembered that we'd have jetlag.
2. We all put our bras on in different ways, and all thought everyone did it our way.
3. Ari is obsessed with doors.
4. Annie has a small nuisance attached to her called her left arm, or "lefty."
5. Becca wishes she was born with dark circles under her eyes.
6. We sort of feel like the money they use here is not real, but they accept it.
6. Not positive we actually went through customs on our way into Switzerland...

The end, for now.
