Last week we spent 4 fantastic days with my relatives in Zurich. I had been counting down the days for so long that it truly felt like a dream when they were finally here.
We started the week off in the city – walking down Bahnhofstrasse, getting a sandwich by the lake, walking through Chinagarten and up to our church, St. Anton.
Tuesday we met at the Landesmuseum (Switzerland’s History Museum), walked through Old Town to see the “Priest’s Church,” Fraumunster, Grossmunster and St. Peter’s Tower. Afterwards we took a boat ride down the Limmat.
Wednesday we had a local day in Albisrieden where we visited Bachwiesen (animal park), Uetliberg (house mountain), followed by dinner at Claudio’s parents house.
Thursday we visited the Rheinfall (Europe’s largest waterfall), as well as the English bookstore in Zurich and had dinner at a well-known vegeterian restaurant, Hiltl.
We had an absolutely wonderful time together. It was the warmest week of the summer, but by far the best! Thanks to Kathy and Joan for being the highlight of our summer!
