You may not find this terribly rewarding unless you're included here, so this is a good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.
Scenes of downtown Zürich in December
A flying visit to reassemble the team
The central train station or Hauptbahnhof in Zürich on a beautiful 18 December 2016, coming off a 3-hour journey via Lausanne, Neuchâtel and Aarau to retrieve a temporarily missing team member.
The mighty Limmat flowing out from the Zürichsee
The Predigerkirche squinting over the Neumarkt neighborhood
Proceeding upriver past the Rüdenplatz
The Grossmünster, a monastery church begun in 1100 and commissioned in 1220, protestantized in 1523 under Zwingli, who had all the nice medieval decorative stuff removed immediately
The Fraumünster or Women's Church across the river, founded in 853 by Ludwig or Louis the German, Charlemagne's grandson, for his daughter, now with stained glass windows by Chagall
A holiday city-train running along nearby
The Opernhaus in the piazza of Sechseläutenplatz, the open square near the Quaibrücke or main bridge where the Limmat runs out from the lake of Zürich
Christmas festivities in the Sechseläutenplatz
Fun for all ages. It's time to hurry on now, we're late.
The Klinik Pyramide am See; the team is reunited.
Zürich centre from the northern shore of the Zürichsee
The Opera House from another angle
The festive tourist bus from another angle
The No. 4 tram is just coming in . . .
. . . we'll grab it.
Back to the Bahnhofplatz, and the National Museum
ShopVille Zürich in the Bahnhof
The Christmas spirit
Duck your head! (Too much of the Christmas spirit)
Home, another three hours, under the Alps and up the Rhône from Visp this time.
We were up here last March, too, and there are some more downtown photos here.
