Today was the day for which we had come to Switzerland. Priyendra had to give his talk and I had to be on my own all day.
Last night Priyendra was working till four in the morning so we could barely catch any sleep. Both of us came to Google from a very weird route which Google Maps suggested. It also said that these directions were in the beta stage and this might not be the best way to get to Google and clearly it wasn’t I found a much better route on the way out!
From Google, I sat on tram 13 again and got off at Paradeplatz. From here I came to the lake and spent some good time there, enjoying the beauty and taking some pictures. Then I walked back to Stockerstrasse and did some window shopping
Central Zurich is a pretty happening place. It is a shopper’s paradise (if you happen to be a millionaire ;)) But it was definitely fun to hang out and go see all the stores. I picked up a drink from Mc Donalds and roamed around for quite a while. I was looking for souvenirs to take back. Finally I decided to eat a Mc Aloo Tikki burger again. I picked up a cool, shaded spot and sat there for quite a while, enjoying my sumptuous meal.
Loaded with energy now, my next target was a walk down the Old Town. Now this place is pretty and all the while I was thinking that Priyendra should see this place. I bought a few chocolates and a pair of lovely shoes for myself 😉
I came to the hotel around three in the afternoon and synced up with Priyendra to reach Google around five in the evening. From Google we went to the Old Town. I was happy to learn that his talk went well! We walked around Zurich Old Town, took a few pictures and finally ate an Indian meal at Tandoori (very close to our hotel)
Now this is our last day in Zurich. We will head to Zermatt the next day. We packed our stuff into a small suitcase and checked in the other stuff at the hotel locker.
Here’s the link to today’s pictures! I am very excited for tomorrow. It is the DDLJ day
