Probably the biggest cigar I've ever seen, held up by Gustav.

Swiss people, too, can visit exotic places - even virtually. This poster is an ad for a panoramic, digital-projected movie about the northern part of Sweden, Norway and Finland where the Sami people live.

Swiss soda. Despite the cannabis leaves on the front, this drink (CICE) has such low concentration of THC that getting high on it is a complete impossibility and you run a higher risk of drowning than bad trips due to the immense amounts of liquid you must drink. It wouldn't surprise me if people have tried, though.

Bahnhofstrasse is the major street going from the central train station right through Zürich. The shops lining the street is of the kind where you - provided you actually buy something - will end up spending very much money for very little amount of solid matter. Perfume, gold, expensive clothes - it is all here. Like the equivalent street in Los Angeles, Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, this is the most expensive land in Zürich.

While the main street is packed with glass storefronts and a trendy appearance, there are small side streets where one can find the traditional old European architecture with tightly packed buildings and cobblestone streets.

The Grossmünster Church sits on a hill above the surrounding buildings. Apparently this is a major tourist attraction - I wasn't the only one with a camera there.

The interior of the church is in a spartan Calvinist style with none of the almost overwhelming amount of decorations one can see in a catholic church. The church had a set of three stained glass windows at the back, though. To the right (but not visible in the picture) is the entrance to the silent meditation room, and a sign informs visitors that they should "listen to the silence" while being in this part of the church.

This gate is at the north-east corner of the old city wall and was a comparatively late addition to the town. On the wall of the gate arch is a condensed history of the last 1000 years of the town, marking important years.
