Uetliberg

Winter in Zurich can be pretty grey and foggy. Most of the days start with high fog, and sometimes it’ll only disappear in the afternoon, if at all. One way to avoid these grey days is to simply go up a mountain and, with a bit of luck, you’ll be over a sea of fog enjoying the sunshine.

Well, we weren’t that lucky today. We managed to get over the first layer of fog, but there was a second layer of clouds covering the sun. The view from the Uetliberg, the local mountain of Zurich, was still beautiful: the city, the lake and the snowy mountains in the background. Sometimes I forget that Zurich is in such proximity to the Alps.

At home, we warmed us up with a hot chocolate and a grilled banana. Happy Sunday!

And because it is all about timing: the diaper was full right on top of the Uetliberg with no changing table anywhere close to us. I put it down to inurement regarding our possible future this year…

About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.
