Switzerland and the Rhine

Zurich

rain 67 °F

Today, we started our AMA Waterways experience. Our morning commenced at 0930 with a brief bus overview of the sights of the city and it's historic landmarks and then we walked through the old town and ended up on Bahnhofstrasse, which connects the rail station and the lake and is the Rodeo drive of Zurich. Zurich is home of the largest clock tower face in Europe. It is quite impressive. We left the tour at Bahnholstrasse so we could stroll the avenue as it were and grab some lunch in a wonderful cafeteria style restaurant on the fifth floor of the Manor department store. As it was lightly raining, and we forgot our umbrellas, we went back to the hotel for a nap, as we have not completely adjusted to the six hour time difference. The rest of the afternoon and evening are free, and we will head out to a local bistro for dinner.
