In an attempt to get back on the blogging bandwagon here in Barcelona after more than a month hiatus, I think it best to first sum up Zurich, Switzerland. The audiences were nice, the city was clean and had efficient public transportation, the people were well educated and cultured, and the cost of living was extremely high. What’s not to like? Other than the terrible cold / flu that I had for the majority of the time there I saw the season change to autumn and the beautiful fall colors emerge especially notable on a trip up to Mount Titlis. (no, I didn’t make that name up!) Other highlights were meeting some fantastic people and making new friends.
