Landed in Zurich at sundown. Went through customs and immigration. The first of many immigration officials that began by recursively asking where I was going next only to fall back on "Just tell me when you will go back to the USA".
The train kiosks weren't the easiest to read but I still managed a ticket and even managed to get on the correct train. Once in downtown I proceeded to buy a $3.50 small bottle of water (welcome to Switzerland, helping out my Nestle dividend) and trying to find the exit from the lower level of the train station. Once above ground, I walked around the downtown for a couple hours burning time before Matt returned from a visit to Munich.
Matt and I went to dinner at what I will call a Bratwurst restaurant where we had...Bratwurst. I had it with a side of fries to wash it down. I'm not a big mustard person, but I tried a touch of their special mustard sauce and it was unique among tastes, although not one I acquired that night. After dinner we walked around the city continuing our talk about life in Switzerland, life as an expat, the complexities and
tribulations of taxes abroad, how much Europe should pay for its own defense, etc.
I crashed at Matt's apartment on an air mattress in the spare bedroom.
