A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of introducing our city to Martin’s cousins Mike & Katie who stopped for a long weekend at the end of their a whirlwind European tour through Germany, Croatia, and Switzerland. Given how far we are away from our family and friends in America, there are few things better than visitors (especially if they arrive with magazines and Sour Patch Kids).
On Saturday afternoon we headed out for a couple of hours to show Mike & Katie around our city. You might think these tours would begin to get old; that we would tire of the Lindenhof or the towers of the Grossmünster, but they don’t. Somehow we always find some new corner–whether a chocolate shop, a quiet undiscovered square, or a new view–to appreciate and add to the list of destinations for next time. Zurich was really showing off that day: warm, windy, and with the Alps shining on the horizon.
