I am spending three days in Zurich with my Uncle Bill (you will recall this is the uncle I went to visit when my passport was stolen when I was your age), my Aunt Carmen, and cousins Sam and Aleksander. Teacher has brough them abroad, as my Uncle is a middle school history teacher at the Zurich International School. Yesterday, I went into school with him, spoke with a few classes (and showed them out blog), and got to meet his students and fellow teachers. This afternoon, I got the tour of Zurich, and tomorrow's main activity is watching my Aleksander's hockey practice. A taste of normal life outside of sport has been refreshing. I've enjoyed the different schedule, bed, and environment. It is hard to capture one city in only a few photos - so I downloaded as many as I could. Enjoy!
Fountains like this can be found everywhere throughout the city, and Switzerland. Aleksander alternated between my water bottle and these fountains while on our walk today.
I was in Italy during Pres. Obama's Inauguration and but his presence is clearly felt where ever we travel. The framed photo says "Welcome Mr. President. Yes We Can!"
Aleksander and I knitting in the evening.
