The train trip to Zurich was uneventful and took about 2 hours. The station is very large and, of course, thousands of people milling around.

We took a taxi to our new digs - Hotel Krone. It's about a 15 minute walk from the old city. The room is small, very nicely appointed - light and bright and 4 stars!
These bed bugs are sweet!
After we got settled, we walked to the Tourist Information Center at the train station, changed Euros to Swiss Francs and found an Italian restaurant for dinner. We also stopped at the local Co-Op store for a few supplies since tomorrow is Sunday and stores will be closed.
The River Limmat runs adjacent to the train station. Tanya is standing on one of the many bridges crossing the river with the train station in the background. (She looks pretty good considering she's coming down with a cold!)

We saw two swans a swimming - but no turtle doves nor a partridge in a pear tree
There was a sign in the elevator that the time changes tonight - falls back one hour - which I think happens in the U.S. next weekend.
The weather is milder than Freiburg, but I heard that a light rain is predicted for the next two days.
