Zurich is really a beautiful city, brimming with history and mingled with modern conveniences. I was amazed at how time efficient and clean everything is. The streets are filled with trams, bicycles and cars but a lot of people (more than 1/2) travel via bicycle or tram. The main river that flows through the center of Zurich is unbelievably clear. (It reminded me of the Mediterranean.) I was especially surprised because Zurich is such a large city. (If only we could use their cleaning methods in Lake Michigan!!)
I was so glad that I decided to get out into the city during my long layover. It was an absolutely beautiful day and walking around helped me feel a bit more human. (I had been traveling for 14 hrs when we landed and had been up for nearly 24 hrs. I had a very difficult time sleeping on the flight from O'Hare to Zurich, partly because the plane felt hot and partly because my butt went numb sometime around hour 3 into the flight!) :)
