Much to the disappointment of the Brits with whom I am stationed – I bagged the 4th of July celebration at work (BBQ, Softball and Beer) in favor of the weekend outing with my husband. As a result, I sort of forgot about the holiday completely in favor of checking in at the Zurich airport after an easy S-Bahn ride, waiting around in the Senator Lounge (traveling with a gold frequent flyer has its advantages), and a smooth transition to the hotel.
Complete with outdoor patio and turret.
Dinner was served for the group on one of the terraces and it was as entertaining to watch the two solo dads try and round up their off-spring (ages 18 months and 5 years) as talking to most of the adults.
My MP3 player lasted through the plane ride and beyond – South Coast by Nathan Lowell.
Candle Flame Shawl out of Wollmiesse provided me with an alternative to the even present socks.
which tonight are furnished by some of the hotel architecture.
