Covering the clichés

Landed.

Through the airport in minutes, like clockwork.

Bought chocolates.

Took the train from the airport to where I was heading.

Train left exactly on time and arrived exactly on time.

Had my first appointment, with a colleague, opposite the train station. I had promised to be there at 9 pm and was there exactly on time. She didn't notice, took it for granted.

Breakfast: ate some (a lot) of cheese.

Some guilt at the large breakfast. Saw some steps leading up the side of the hill:

Climbed them (because they were there, naturally). Not a spectacular view, but did enjoy the clean air on top.



(And my calves still pinch when I walk after going down these stairs...)


Spend the day flugelbinding. Caught the train to my next destination.



Goodbye Switzerland.

P.S. I do love the Swiss railway clocks, which is what this is though it's hard to see...

Hey, you forgot the cuckoo clocks. You've got to love those twittering birds... Doc

I didn't forget, but never saw one in my time there. (I'm told they are more German). Also missed were bankers. Didn't see a one. BB

And you forgot BANKS!! Did you deposit large amounts of cash, or change useless US dollars with safer swiss francs???!! ;)

ooops... just noticed you mentioned bankers... but that's a little white lie, isn't it? :)

It's true... There was the inner banker in me peeking out, but other than me didn't see much of that. Wonder where they were all hiding? BB
