Survived a 9h flight relatively well due to some sleeping tablets
Food was by Hiltl which means although no Hiltl quality still good enough to survive ;)
minutes before leaving Zurich I learned that my flight to Houston was cancelled on the 3 February due to the weather. So once I arrived I went to find the Swiss counter and since they were unable to help went to look for the United counter. So right now it looks like I can fly from La Guardia instead of Newark and should make it for my plane in Houston :)
The flat I have rented is nice , a bit dark but that's ok since I am here only 2 nights. It is clean and cosy , and has loads of TV channels ;)
It is bit noisy though , there is always a heater or a vent or the fridge making all kind of noices. I know some people who like those mononton sounds but I don't really belong to them ;)
And the best thing of course is the fact that one of my favourite restaurantsis right around the corner and yes I have already visited it ;) nothing betta than a likkle souldfood to start a good vacation ;)
I love the place not only for the food but also for the atmoshphere and the people who hang around there.
Think the funkiest persons in there today must have been ( beside Sony the barkeeper) that group of 5 guys, all in there early 60, 3 of them with a fur coat, and one with a rather special hairstyle, the only "normal" one was wearing a hoody and looked like the bodyguard of the "band"
I so would have loved to take a picture; a real kodak moment
If you in NY on a Wednesday combine it with a visit to the amateur night at the famous Appollo
