My connection in Europe to Belgrade is thru Zurich, and with a 4 hour
scheduled layover, I decided to try to see the city.
Thanks to Swiss efficiency, I managed the following schedule:
9:30- clear customs
9:45-train from airport to city
9:57 arrive in city
(walking tour of city)
11:17-train back to airport
The verdict on Zurich: nice place, but completely uninteresting,
unless you have millions in a Swiss bank account. (IRS: if you're
reading this, I don't!)
In defense of the Swiss there aren't many cities alive at 10am on a
Saturday morning, but having done some pre-trip research, I wasn't
surpised by the lack of tourist sights.
I'll make up for that on my next stop, Belgrade, Serbia. What Belgrade
lacks in Swiss efficiency and good chocolate, it makes up for with
Slavic zest, and unfortunately, ethnic violence. (seriously, do a
google search on soccer hooliganism in Belgrade.)
I take off in an hour.
