If you didn't know, Switzerland isn't very flat, so walking around the cities consists of a lot of hills and stairs. By the time I reached Zurich, I had reached the peak of my fatigue and my legs were so sore, they were locking up on me. I could barely walk, but I managed to walk around the city, with a little motivation from Claudine. Tonight we stayed with her cousin, who has turned his apartment into a bed an breakfast, and we were his first guests. I felt like I was a princess, it was very nice and the food was amazing too.
The next morning, I was happy to just sleep in and take my time to get ready before I had to catch my flight to Copenhagen, that I had noted left at 3:50pm. I didn't have the internet all week, so I didn't double check my flight times, so I wanted to be there a little early just in case, so Claudine brought me the train station, where I could catch a quick train to the airport at around 1:00.
Thoughts while in Switzerland:
-They are seriously obsessed with time and watches. It must be a pain for daylight savings time.
-There is no flat land here, hills are considered the flat region.
-It is too expensive!!! RETARDED!!
-Europe can almost be summed up here, with all the different cultures (French, Italian, German), all the different landscapes (maybe missing a little flat lands), architecture, history.
