We spent our first day in Zurich, walking everywhere around the city center. Things that stood out to me... The train system is so effecient, down to the minute. The train to our hotel always arrived at 9 minutes after and 39 minutes after the hour. A LOT different than Kenya. All the buildings are beautiful, even the regular homes look like something out of national geographic. The pretzles are my favorite bread here, which could be a little dangerous.
Our second day in Europe we took the train through the Alps to St. Moritz, a posh ski town, where we are hanging out with Will's parents for a few days. We took a cable car to the top most peak at over 9,000 feet. It was one of the most beautiful landscapes I've ever seen, even might beat Alaska.

The downfalls of Switzerland is that it is quite expensive to eat and it's a little cold for me, even colder than Limuru this morning. But overall, Switzerland is one of the most beautiful places I've been and it is definitely a nice break from life in Kenya.

This was the view around every corner as we took the train from Zurich to St. Moritz...
