Visiting Zuerich

I’m sitting in a cafe in Zuerich.

I headed to Zuerich with Ed and Abbie in their automobile today after returning the mountain bike I have been borrowing. It’s hot here. Really quite warm. We wandered around the pedestrian area for a while and then drank raedlers at a cafe. Ed and Abbie have headed off to Freiburg now to see Julian and Jana. I’m staying the night at Jane Allison’s flat. I’ll try and navigate there in a couple of hours from the cafe.

I found my way over to Jane’s flat. She showed me a swimming spot down by the lake crowded with bikini babes. We went for a dip and swam out between the boats moored at the edge of the lake.

Later we had tea with her flat mate Marie on the roof with a great view of Zuerich. Jane cooked a delicious tea had with wine and followed with icecream and special Zuerich chocolates for dessert. Finally we had a spot of port and more chocolates. My, I am being spoiled.

I was amused as Jane berated her flat mate for giving the guest the spoon from Ikea rather than bringing up the silver. Considering that I have spent the last couple of weeks wearing smelly clothes, sleeping in a smelly tent, and eating out of an icecream container with a plastic spoon, I thought I was doing pretty well and no spoon from Ikea was going to change that.
