Well, this is my first entry. Am finally in Switzerland, and it's very pretty and treelined in this part of Zurich. The flight was pretty uneventful. Couldn't sleep much, so watched several dodgy flicks and played a bit of Tetris. Nice, eh?
Stop off in KL was short and sweet. Only event of note took place while I was standing in a glass lift that travelled only 1 floor, pretty disoriented after the flight. An Indian guy wearing a safari suit and sporting an impressive Elvis-style wig held the doors of the lift open, and the following exchange took place:
Wig Guy: "Is this terminal C27?"
WG: "Where are you going?"
After that, the door slowly closed with us both staring at each other, bewildered. Good times. Nothing much else to note, have done a hellava lot of walking around, and almost staggered back over a 2nd floor railing after I learnt just how expensive 'expensive' is. It's nearly 7 bucks (AU) for a Big Mac here, as a benchmark. I'm also getting pretty good at saying "Excuse me, my German is not very good. Do you speak English?" in German. So that's something.
Anyways, will be exploring more of downtown with Eb tomorrow, then it's probably on to the countryside, and possibly to Germany. Haven't found anywhere that allows you to upload pics yet (the Swiss motto seems to be "trust nobody") but I'm sure we'll find somewhere soon. Got a guestbook going on this thing, so leave a message if you're so inclined. Hopefully hear from you guys soon.
