One of the blogs I read every day is The Daily Dish with Andrew Sullivan. He has this ongoing feature where he posts photos that people from around the world have taken from the window where they work or live. I decided to submit my photo, and he freakin posted it the next day!
Here is the post with our view from the office room. I wonder if any of these neighbors read him?
I guess the next best thing after the World Cup in the soccer world is the Euro tournament. Essentially it is the same format as the World Cup except it is a Europe-only competition. The next one is in 2008 and is being co-hosted by Switzerland and Austria. I guess this is a huge get for these countries because the countdown is officially on.
Counting down in Paradeplatz
On one of our first visits to Zurich we were able to see the Alps pretty clearly looking south across the lake. We imagined this was a pretty typical view at the time. As it turns out, it is fairly rare for the mountains to make an appearance on the horizon. There is always this haze that obscures them on the clearest of days. But every once in a while something happens and they show up. This happen just the other day. It was such an event that Chizzy commanded me to walk out to the lake to get some pictures.
