So here I am, day two in Zurich, brown cow but no chicken yet (inside joke, see photo). I spent the better part of the day on what I consider the best hike of my life. A expat (US), now living in Tazmania, told me to take the tram up to the hills. He said there I would find two huge cell phone towers, one of which could be climbed for an awesome view of the city. When I got there I found a zoo, a magnificent view, as well as the perfect place for a wedding (if anyone is in the market for that sort of thing). Moreover, I found the perfect Swiss miss (swiss-french poodle), for Sammy, taking a walk with its owner (see pic), who knows...
Wawawoowa (thats cause I heading east to the Bloc). (Next stop Ljubljana). Never heard of it? Me neither, but I'm going anyway. It turns out it is in Slovenia. The reason I am going, oh because I met a guy from Brazil who was going to go to Interlaken for a concert, but at the last minute decided that he had to go see about a girl from Barcelona (really from Brazil too), who is going to a music festival in Austria. Think I am kidding, nope. Actually as I write this, I am on the train, sitting next to a girl from Bern who is heading to Sofia, yep... geography lesson number 2. Its in... Bulgaria (thanks Spotlight). So...nI have been called random (among other things) in my life, now I have some insight as to why.
The worst part of the day was actually the best. On my walk to the train station, the sky opened up and it started pouring. Know what... I am not even mad, kind of impressed. I just kept plowing my way to the station and got there completely soaked, albeit elated. One of the best showers, and days, of my life.
