Zoo, Zoo, Zoo --- Zurich

Resized_HPIM5194 Resized_HPIM5193 I can’t tell you much about Zurich.  We got really lost getting there and came in late.  André didn’t like the neighborhood where our B and B was located, and the place was the smallest we’d stayed.  It was full of neat art though – Griffin was in love with the chair at right. So much so he made me take a photo and said he ‘wanted to marry it one day’.  We didn’t sleep well and we were so burnt out by all our touring we decided we’d spend the day at the zoo.  Unfortunately, we realized that we had forgotten to exchange our Euros for Swiss Francs and André headed off to find a MAC machine.  The kids and I finished breakfast and hung out at a beautiful park around the corner until he came back.  It was our first really clear and sunny day the whole vacation.

Then we hit the zoo.

It was a really fun zoo with interesting animals and lots of interactive stuff for the kids.  We then headed for center city for a last yummy meal before going home.  The best ravioli outside of Italy lives in Zurich and we’d been looking forward to it all week.  Unfortunately, it’s closed on Saturday afternoons – ARGH!

At least we got a glimpse of Zurich – but I still want to go back – to see the city center, the churches and yes, eat the ravioli!

We were home in Besancon by early Saturday evening and spent the day Sunday resting, unpacking and going for a swim at the pool.  It took 11 blogs to write about this journey but I finally finished! Goodbye for at least a while, dear, dear adventure.
