Business travel can suck…
but not when they send you somewhere breathtaking.
I arrived in Zurich this morning and hopped a train to nearby Lucerne, a beautiful city that has everything you probably associate with Switzerland.
Moutains. A gorgeous lake. A slice of history around every corner. And a slice, too. (There are a lot of pizzerias…not that I’m complaining ).
I spent the day walking around this compact little town. I quickly abandoned my map and decided to see what I would see.
I saw an amazing art installation at a local school.
And a proud pup or two. (This is Figo.)
I also noticed that, in this pedestrian city, no one jaywalks. They don’t smile at passersby, either. And the church bells peal on the hour, which was rather beautiful.
Tomorrow I have to work (what?) and there is talk of rain, but I hope to fit in some indoor sightseeing during my brief visit.
