Zurich, Switzerland

Zurich was picture postcard. A little overcast and cool. There are 2 sides to Zurich, on the other side of the river is the old town side. Beautiful old architecture, alleyways and lots of little cafes.
Dotted throughout the alleyways were drinking fountains of every size and shape. There is a constant stream of drinking water, and I kept thinking, water restrictions, turn off the tap.
Switzerland is known for it's clocks and on every tower and church steeple there were the most intricate clock faces. Also every second shop was a watch shop.
Chocolates, chocolate and more chocolate.... by the end of 4 days this was how I was feeling. This sculpture was suspended from the ceiling of Hauptbahnhoff train station. The foyer is also a food market with stalls of amazing arrays of cheeses, cold meats, pastries, cakes and of course....chocolate.
The Limmat River running through the heart of Zurich
