Hello From Winterthur


Actually, everything worked out.  Smooth trip to Zurich.  My bag showed up.  Quick train trip to Winterthur and a 5 minute walk to the hotel.

Hotel Banana City.  I’m not making this shit up.  The fascination that Europeans have for using English words knows no bounds.  It’s actually a very nice place and easily twice as large a room as I usually get when I stay over here.  Somebody screwed up.

Internet access is fast but oh so expensive.  I can never understand why Swiss hotels haven’t taken a clue from their North American cousins.  Charging for access on top of already high rates is not the way to win customer loyalty.  But hey, it works for them.

Everything is unpacked and I’m beat.  Probably going to get a few hours sleep and see if anything is open in the evening.  I’m not getting my hopes up.
