The most striking thing about Zurich is how expensive and rare the restaurants are. There are few restaurants, and almost none open before 10am. A bottle of water cost about $7. A slice of bread and some cheese would cost $12. We were torn between hunger and sticker shock.
A church next to the train station. We walked along this path every day.
The fruit is actually made of some other substance. The oranges seem to be really oranges that were scooped out and filled with cream.
View from our hotel room. We were very jetlagged and slept from 2pm to 8pm every day, then went to forage for dinner. We woke up at 4am every morning and waited for the sun to rise.
Fondue! We ate cheese fondue, meats with oil fondue, and meats with broth fondue. It was as tasty as I dreamed it would be.

We went into Sprüngli, a chocolate shop. My brother drank hot chocolate and ate chocolate cake. My parents drank nothing and ate nothing, because the shop was so shockingly expensive.
A champagne-flavored ... I forget the name of this type of pastry. It's very small. This single-bite pastry cost about $3.
A fountain which has frozen over.
My parents on the train to Luxembourg. There are a lot of little towns in the European countryside. I thought it would be a beautiful view of snowy mountains, but instead it seemed to be one beige-colored town after another.
