What a awesome place when we steamed into the station or should I rather say rolled in.
Thinking of the high Swiss culture of service we head strong for the tourist bureau on the Station platform.
Was I disappointed to the poor service
A lady in her middle years of Asiatic origin served us with a unsympathetic attitude that belong to tax collector
She did know of any agriculture being done in the Zurich area outside the city
When we gave up trying we asked for accommodation to recommend. She brutally answer that the only place open and she has is the EasyHotel part of the Easy Jetline group.
Ons sit af na die Hotel but viewing the landscape from the Tram trolly is not good when I see a lot of men sitting on verandas en Betting shops I mentioned to Pollie that we are in downtown area
Arrived at Easy hotel and it is basic as their airline. Room without a lift yu carry your nags three floors up ok good exercise but the room is basic bed only no chair to sit on. Bed is 140cm from ground only place to sit is Toilet.
Room is tiny no table nothing and very expensive. If you can avoid Switzerland do it. The prizes are too high.
Ok we complain about the area we do not feel safe to stroll around and I was very upset from the tourist office recommend
Any case we live a life of paradoxes yu
Need to know salt to know sugar.
We stroll up on the main streets around the station saw most fantastic chocolate shops and very upmarket clothes and shoes and jewelry
Bought a Burger King and asked for ketch up " it is extra sir" whow!!! this is Zurich.
We slept ok and was up and fresh ready to continue our trip down south.
Lesson learned" Stay out of City"
The jewels lay in the country side let us go and look for them
