Crises overcome

Zürich feels a bit more normal.

Last week, as restaurants around Zürich slowly reopened, one posted this sign out front… reminding Zurichers about past “crises overcome”, and “CoronaVirus 2020 nearly!!!”   As I walked through the city yesterday, I saw many sidewalk restaurants open for business, with cheerful customers enjoying their lunch and the spring sunshine with a glass of wine… often separated by nearby tables with new plexiglass screens or spaced apart with potted plants.  It feels a bit like old Europe should feel on a sunny late spring day.

For my part, I still stop by some of my favorite bakeries along my morning walk; it’s hard to resist a display case like this one!
