Where I stayed
Hotel du Smith
Hello from Zurich!
Wow, It has been a great trip over here so far! I got to Atlanta and
there was a two hour layover, had some yummy chicken soup, and got onboard a
Delta Boeing with close to 300 people onboard to Zurich
A half hours over the Atlantic, no turbulence, three movies, and very tight seats.
Angie and the girls met me at the Zurich Baggage check, and it was so exciting to see them!
We got in their little VW Minivan, and they drove me to their beautiful home away from
Home. Nestled in the mountainside, this lovely house is like a mansion, IKEA style.
Overlooking Zurich, it is about a five minute drive to the downtown area. Angie made
Pancakes and bacon, and I showered and changed clothes, and they took me into downtown Zurich
to show me around. We drove around the city, parked and went on the Polybahn, an up and downhill
bright red trolley, walked up into the GrossMunster Church; the tallest church tower overlooking Lake
then back to Angela's home to make dinner for Brian and the fam. Dining out wasn’t an option, and
Angela made a great dinner of sausages, potatoes, peppers and Raclette cheese melted. Mmm,
We had a scare with Kayley, who was whittling with a Swiss army knife, and accidently cut her thumb.
We thought that she may need stitches, but got bandaged and antiseptic, and learned a good lesson
bout the Swiss knives- they are very sharp! Don’t mess with the Swiss! Love it here, very wonderful to
see Kayley, Serena, Alex and Ang and Brian so happy! This is very beautiful, and the view is amazing at
night overlooking Zurich lights! Amanda, they have no dryer, no one does, and they hang things on lines! Yikes, this is so old fashioned! Well, tomorrow we are going to northern France.
Aufweidersein! Love, Pano
