Saturday, in the park...

by Jay March. 06, 2012 6809 views

Zürich, Saturday afternoon after giving a little tour of the town and the lake to two friends. We took our tiny box of three macaroons (all raspberry, mind you) up to some of the oldest parts of Zürich (this area is pre-13th C.), overlooking the river and the rest of the city. It was busy with all sorts of people enjoying the moderate temperatures.
Check it out when you are next there. You'll love this city.

…there were men and women playing chess.

…there was a dog learning chess moves,

and a colorful man in a yellow beret.

…young people flirting and hanging out.

…there were still some open spaces.

…there were girls practicing for PB.

…there were views of the River Limmat and a tram down below.

…there was a pigeon on a perch with the best view in town.
(The Alps make up the entire backdrop of this photo, but the clouds blocked them all day.)

…there was a nice view when we came down after our macaroons.

What a lovely way to play chess at least it gets them out in the open air rather in some stuffy café.

Beautiful set of a lovely, clean town. I like those huge chess sets -- they should have them here, but for sure the pieces would be stolen! Also those girls practicing for PB! ;-)

"Travels with Jay"! I like this kind of post, we could all learn from you and start showing what's out there instead of wondering what to shoot! There is just something about people doing whatever they are doing that invites the imagination to fire up. I like!

I've already visited Zurich and other places in Switzerland and i really love that country. I stayed in Interlaken and then travelled all over Switzerland and now my godson is making is doctorate precisely in Zurich University (Veterinary medecine). And he loved it so much he is going to stay there for more two years.
