From City to Mountains - Zurich, Switzerland

Today's post finds me wrapping up a visit in Zurich, Switzerland. Here we toured to anaerobic digestion facilities - one that converts bio-waste to bio-diesel, and one that converts organic and bio-waste to electricity. From industrial surroundings to a facility tucked right in the heart of the mountains northwest of Zurich, we had a chance to see this region for all that it is known for - especially the facility in the mountains. It was a great experience to wind our way through so many small Swiss communities to get to this location and to see the architecture of old factories and homes. The view from the plant site shows some beautiful views! The drive up to the site also was exquisite. From clouds to rainbows to fields of grapes - I had no idea that this region is a wine region.
 
So today we enjoyed a day of sight-seeing in the city. We took the train, which was just outside the hotel, into the heart of the city and enjoyed a great walking tour of the old city and the alleys tucked in between the buildings. We never knew what to expect at any turn From rivers to church steeples to forts, we walked quite a bit. One stop found me on a small alley in front of a store called Wagner Tabak Libeli - a fantastic little cigar shop with a great selection of cigars. I found a label I had never had - Patoro, from the Dominican Republic. If you find yourself in the heart of Zurich, find this cigar shop and enjoy the great selection that they have!
 
The city was amazing. The pictures hardly do it justice, but enjoy the journal that is attached.
