The Cup revealed before the tournament

It was a tiring yet interesting journey from Kuala Lumpur via Bangkok to Vienna. Everything as planned, no delays. Thank god all the airports have "smoking area" (I am a terrible chain smoker). Arrived in Vienna, took a domestic flight to Basel, Switzerland. Thought it was summer time?! maybe early summer, it was rainy days all the way, temp around 12-15 degrees celcius. Luckily I have my Adidas jacket though. I understand that the Swiss and Austrian speaks german, but "ich sprechen kyn deutsch"..No problem, most people speak English nowadays. Took a train from Basel to Zurich after landed. About an hour, met up with one passenger, she looks like an art student. Made a conversation, and yes she is an art student in Zurich( haha, good try). Trying to get some info, well, unfortunately she just happened to show her drawings most of the time (she must be really proud of it). The next day, I took a flight again back to Vienna, due to an order from my boss asking me to cover an exclusive coverage only for media - The Euro 2008's Cup revealed before us.  Took some visuals, picture, touched the "brass cup" (feel like a champion), interviewed some people there. Back to Zurich in the evening, back to hotel (hilton Airport-Zurich), patched my laptop computer and sent visuals and be continued..
