This was the view from my hotel room in Kloten, just outside of Zurich. So cute!

Greetings from Zurich!  After 4 extremely hectic but amazing days in Paris, Zurich is like a relaxing, peaceful country village...  It is quiet and there is not too much for the students to do I think, but it is really lovely here.  The people are very nice and the town is so quaint and cute.  I have heard several members of the group say they could see themselves living here, probably much to the dismay of the Zurich residents...

Anyway, the bus ride here was about 10 hours from Paris, but the bus is very nice so it was not too bad.  Of course I get to sit in the front with more room, so you might here a different story from the students in the back....  All I can say is thank God for my iPod.

We arrived in Zurich just in time for our welcome dinner the first night, so we did not do much that night.

This is a little bakery across the street from our hotel that we came to call "Croissant King". I laughed so hard at the "sculpture" outside....
   Yesterday we went to the Kunsthaus museum, which was really one of the best we have seen.  Afterwards we loaded back up on the bus to travel the 10 km to Kloten where we are staying so that we could all change clothes to attend the concert that night.  We heard a cellist and a pianist play Beethoven for 2 hours and it was lovely.  Certainly not something I had done before and I am very glad I did.  Then back on the bus to Kloten for some wine and cheese, and debriefing, with my fellow group leaders, Jason, Jeff and Ron.  They are really nice and a delight to be with for these 4 weeks!  No pulling out of hair just yet anyway... though Jason has developed a complex that I would rather be traveling with Brett.  Poor Jason....

OK, that is all for now.  We are off to Venice tomorrow morning, which I am extatic about!  Even though it is going to be very busy it is one of my favorite places in the world and I cannot wait. 

More from there!!
