arrival in zurich
At the Bahnhof in Zürich
Monday morning, May 23. We look like zombies because we had been traveling all night. We picked up our rental van at the airport and drove into Zürich, parking at a large underground garage near the Bahnhof, then walked over to the Bahnhof to use the cash machine.

Walking in Zürich
You can see the Church of St. Peter in the background (largest clock face in Europe). I didn't even notice the "English Books" sign until looking at these photos later!

Zürich: View of the Limmat from the Lindenhof
By this point we had run out of steam and were ready to go to our hotel, but at least we saw a little of Zürich!
(From here we took a quick look at the Roman ruins and at the organ and Chagall windows at Fraumünster, then walked back to our rental car and drove to the hotel in Adliswil, just outside Zurich.)
