This means that I spent the work week at the office, doing office type things (ya know, meetings, making copies, collating, stapling, coffee-ing, taking trips to distant Swiss mountains , gorging on ice cream, listening to Heidi on the intercom - the usual office stuff).
This also means that by the time I escaped the office, grabbed supper, and started exploring, it was getting close to the end of the sunny parts of the day.
As a result much of my first experiences with Zurich was in the twilights and darknesses of the European night time (which is exactly like the North American night but 6 hours earlier).
So these are some the first real memorable scenes of Zurich, starting with some lighted stained glass, as seen from the Lindenhof (site of an old roman fort, and one of the highest places in town).
This is the Opera House. No opera was heard. Zurich is awesome that way.
