Hello from Zurich. As you can see from the photos below, we at last have snow on the ground here! Lucky loves the snow, but the shoveling left him exhausted - ha.

Fondue is the perfect meal for a chilly winter evening, and last night we had a group of friends in for a 3-stage feast, to try out various types of Fondue. We began with the traditional Cheese Fondue, moved onto a Chinese-style Broth Fondue for beef and fish, and ended the evening with, of course, Chocolate Fondue. Believe it or not, we actually had leftover melted chocolate, and found a great use for it this morning - Mochas!

I’m glad so many of you are enjoying this blog. We’ll try to keep the posts coming. ~Susan

Beatiful day in Zurich

Yesterday we took the local train to the top of Uetliberg, the mountain in Zurich. This is the mountain I run up and down most weekends. It was a clear sunny day and felt very warm in the sunshine. We could see the mountains above Interlaken. As soon as the sun went down it got very cold.
Photos are posted below.

Winter walk on the Wanderweg

Yesterday we spent the day in Davos, Switzerland. The weather was crisp, but with the brilliant sunshine it felt warm.
We walked along a winter path from one end of town to the other. Lots of people were doing the same thing. We also saw a large number of cross-country skiers, like when we lived in Alaska. However, Alaska ski trails are a lot more rugged and challenging than the beautifully manicured wide trails in Davos.
Photos of the day are below.
