SMS still felt badly so I went to breakfast by myself, followed by a walk around the lake. I bought myself a Busker’s Fair tee-shirt, which was bright yellow with a seagull on it. When I showed it to SMS later, he questioned this purchase (and by implication, my sanity) knowing that I really don’t like seagulls. Although this reads very boringly, it was a sign that he was coming back to life. Hooray!
We stayed in the hotel until check-out so SMS could rest up. We had been planning on seeing a town in the Romansch area but that was nixed due to SMS’ malaise. We took the bus, then the train to Zurich. We arrived around 4, locked up the suitcase and headed over to the Bellevue section where we met our AirBnB host at Cafe Odeon.
Once we got to the apartment, SMS laid down and I went over to W. Zurich to walk around. I got off at the Hardbrücke station and checked out Frau Gerolds Garten, the Freitag store, the Hive with its outside art and an old viaduct with boutique shops and a larger Market Hall. I walked back to central Zurich through Gewerbeschule, which was a very cool neighborhood. As I got closer to the apartment, I came upon the dress rehearsal for a kids’ dance school show. I saw cute little kids in funny animal costumes so it was a great end to the day!
