One of these days I will have knitting content. I promise.
I spent a week in Zurich. The fall colors were gorgeous, and I got a few nice sunny days to explore the area.
Switzerland is one of those places that you could go down a dark alley in the middle of the night and come out the other side unscathed. The entire country is eerily squeaky clean and tidy, and even the biggest cities have a noticeable absence of grime and grit. There are bicycles sitting around everywhere, and none of them had the requisite double lock system that you need in New York.
I discovered the joys of Raclette:
It's a mild, nutty swiss cheese that is roasted until soft and then scraped off in slabs onto bread, potatoes and pickles. Perfect for a chilly fall night.
It also goes great with Glühwein.
There were some good dining options. Switzerland is full of money and bankers, so there is no shortage of extravagant places to spend all that cash.
There's an interesting art scene there as well, but I was too busy eating fondue and good chocolate to check it out.
