Another great day; sunshine, warm(er) temperatures and the opportunity to have a day out in Zurich! Any successful visit to this, one of the happiest (and cleanest) cities in the world (http://www.citylab.com/politics/2016/02/europe-happy-cities-eurobarometer-athens/461958/) is never complete without a walk to view the mountains on the other side of the Zurichsee, watching the swans on the Limmat; which flows through the city’s heart, and a vegetarian lunch at the Hiltl (the world’s first vegetarian restaurant, which opened in 1898; http://www.hiltl.ch/en/).
After living in Switzerland for a while, like osmosis, one starts to like, and even love the colour red. It is everywhere – the Swiss flag, shoes and glasses frames on older ladies with serious style attitude, blankets, awnings, cushions in cafes…red is everywhere.
Without noticing it when I was taking pictures, in all the photos I am really pleased with, red is the main focus (maybe it is also the Canadian in me????). So here’s to red!
