Last Day in Europe
On Sunday, August 29, we woke up in Winkel, Switzerland.
[09:47] A pleasant surprise – We paid 90CHF for hotel Landgasthof Breiti, but I was expecting something around 130 CHF.
[10:14] It is Sunday, but Airport Gas Station is opened and there are no lines. Here we paid 79.55 CHF for 48.79 litters (1.63 CHF/L). Let’s compare this to some prices we saw 2 days ago on a Swiss-Italian border in Chiasso.
I was making this picture to compare gasoline prices later. Only now I noticed that this picture actually captures a plaque stating “Guinness World Record in High Fuel” (nel risparmio di carburante). I have no idea, what does it mean.
[11:29] Starbucks at the Airport Kloten -16.80 CHF
[13:55] Flight from Zurich (Kloten) to New York (JFK)
Delta flight was almost painless. Every seat had a personal monitor with a touch screen. Almost entire time we played Game Trivia against other passengers on the plane.
[Eastern Time Zone] We didn’t have any bags checked in. Only carry-on items. Instead of waiting 4 hours for our next flight, we jump the ship to an earlier flight from New York to Boston. Fantastic!
[20:32-20:51] Taxi ride from the Logan Airport – $54.30
Back to work. However, a long Labor Day weekend is just around the corner. I will use this opportunity to conquer Pemigewasset Wilderness (see article here at http://www.domainwebcenter.com/?p=268)
We spent 2 weeks in Switzerland and Italy. It took 3 month to write this report about it. A very slow deliberate process. Every day several hour a day. Meanwhile, I learned a lot of tricks on how to arrange images and captions, how to edit and combine images in Photoshop, the true value of Firefox spell check, and how to combine a number of articles into a series.
This Web Publishing is truly amazing apparatus to express the untold stories and memories.
