Last friday, I couldn’t wait to get out of work as I was meeting Eli, a friend that I first met earlier this year at the University, during the *Language and the Media“- and *English in New Zealand“-Lectures..
We decided to meet at the Zurich main station, then find some drinks and a snack and walk towards lake Zurich, where we hoped to find a place for a little picnic. 🙂 While walking there, we found this street sign, saying:
“No Sharks in the Limmat River in Zurich.
The municipal police of Zurich gives the all-clear: In the flowing waters of Zurich is absolutely no risk of being attacked by sharks. Nevertheless, swimming between the “Quai bridge“ and the river baths „Oberer Letten“ is dangerous and therefore forbidden.”
What a great idea to catch people’s attention – and it’s so much funnier than the usual prohibition signs in the city. 😀
We found a lovely place under a tree close to the water, where we sat down, had our beers and ate “pom-bears“. We talked a lot, about everything at all. It felt like we’ve known each other for ages. 🙂
After finishing our beers, we went for some ice cream. I picked dark chocolate, and the seller gave me some mango-icecream to try. A very funny and nice guy, and the ice cream was delicious, too… 😀
We strolled along the lakeside and enjoyed the view on the lake. We decided to go back to the main station just in time, as there was a huge thunderstorm approaching us from the other side of the lake. It was windy and we could already see the lightning dancing in the dark, cloudy sky when we turned around. Just when we arrived at the station, it began to rain heavily… But still, it was an awesome evening, and I hope we can repeat that, soon… 🙂
Here are some more pictures that I took during the evening walk.
By the way, I finally booked a flight back to Czech Republic last week. I’ll leave Zurich on the 18th of July, and I’ll return on the 24th. I really can’t wait to see my friends and my second family back in Czech Republic again. And I’m really wondering how big the kittens have grown, which were born only three weeks before I went there in April. 🙂 I’m really super-excited. Unfortunately, my mobility is still quite limited, as I still haven’t got my driver’s license. So we will stay in the Karlovy Vary Region. The last day we want to spend in the Zoo in Prague – I love Zoos a lot! For the other days we haven’t made any plans yet – suggestions would be highly appreciated. 🙂
