Josefstrasse 29 (Zürich, Switzerland)

I had a fairly good sleep last night. Woke up first at 6:00, read the online news, drank a cup of coffee but went back to sleep. I woke later and ate a bowl of oatmeal before leaving for my walk to Lake Zürich. Overcast today and don’t expect to see much of the sun and it is somewhat cool.

The walk to the lake is about 30 minutes. Along the way I crossed over the Limmat, a river that runs through Zürich. I stopped by several churches along the way and took pictures. Also walked through part of the old town as well. Zürich is Switzerland’s largest city and is a banking center. Not surprising that there are many high-end shops and expensive cars driving on the streets. Some of the tourists were taking pictures of the cars. I’m sure I saw a Lamborghini or Maserati but I couldn’t tell for sure.

When I got closer to the lake I decided to have coffee, a muffin and yogurt at a Starbucks. Was nice to sit and relax before continuing my walk. When you look out at the lake you can see the Swiss Alps in the distance but with the cloud cover it was difficult to clearly see them.

I found where you can take a boat trip on the lake so I’ll probably do that on Thursday. I have plans to visit Liechtenstein tomorrow.

Tonight after dinner I’ll watch one or two more episodes of the Bill Gates documentary. It is mostly focused on the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the work the foundation is doing to make the world a better place.
