Morning train ride up Üetliberg

Tofu waiting for the train at Üetliberg, Zurich, SwitzerlandI am so envious of people living in Zurich where they can do morning hikes up Üetliberg before heading off to work. One mountain, countless trails! The plan was to hike up in the morning but since it was too slippery in winter, we took the train, S10, up and had really awesome coffee.

The view of Lake Zurich from the lookout tower (the wind was crazy cold).

Zurich old town, where I was the day before.

This would be a great spot for a game of chess or a simple meal. If only my ears weren’t freezing.

My trusty travel buddy waiting for the train back to Zurich HB. Lucky for him, he didn’t have to worry about his ears getting frozen since he has none to begin with. 😛

Touched down in Zurich!

I know right, what a boring title. This is my favorite shot from today.

Anyway, highlight of the day was definitely lunch with Yumi! Tried rabbit pie (rabbit meat actually) for the first time ever! YUCK. I wasn’t sure if it was the weird taste of rabbit meat or the ton of carrots that came with it, it might have been a psychological aversion as well. First bite and the last for sure.

And I finally went down the slide at the Zurich office! Lunch time is definitely not the ideal time since you would land awkwardly right in front of a bunch of people having lunch. Then again, they are probably used to it. Hurhur.

I really liked how peaceful and quiet the city was plus the weather was perfect.

And now (9pm) is time for me to get my 8 hours of sleep. Till tomorrow!
