Switzerland — Zurich, October 25, 2014

Zurich is just about an hour by train from Bern these days (when I lived in Bern, it was 1 1/2 hours). I arrived a little early for my coffee with Brigitte, also a former colleague from Washington (I worked for the Embassy of Switzerland there in the early 1990s). Wandering around the main train station, I found a lot of art. The flower shop where we were to meet has some cool metal pieces.

Downstairs was this fountain.

No visit to the main train station is complete without a quick look at this angel by Niki de Saint Phalle, a French sculptor.

A quick walk down Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich showed this innovative sign in one of the department store windows. This is a still photo of gigantic figures walking…
