ALONG WITH THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF ZURICH, THE FAMOUS WATCH MUSEUM, DELICACIEAS AND THE MOST FAMOUS TOY STORE HAVE GRABBED THE ATTENTION OF MANY.
My daddy has written lots about Zurich for about a million years by now, but he says he never realised what a great place it must look like to a 3-year-old like me. He asked me to tell you why it is, so here goes:
You may have heard that Switzerland is where ever so many watches come from and that the Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich has stores just full of them. That may be important if you are one of those people who can do something called telling time (which I’m starting to igure out), But for me, the best part is going into Beyer, a store that has its own watch museum.
When you are inside, you should ask everyone, “How is your day feeling?” And when your daddy finally says that, maybe we had better leave, go up to everyone again and say, “Auf Wiedersehen!” Then convince a nice lady to give you a red apple from a bowl and go outside while eating it.
Make your daddy sit on a cold bench so you can eat your apple and watch ever so many street cars go by and call out the route numbers on top of each. Later, join your mummy and daddy for a tram ride that is even more fun than taking the “really big bus” back home. Riding a tram is easy to do in Zurich because those route numbers are clearly marked, and friendly Zurich people are always around to help your parents ind their way when they get lost which mine tend to do.
Switzerland is known for its terriic wooden toys, which have been made here for longer than even my daddy can remember, which is hard to believe. Want one? First, convince your parents, on a stroller tour of the lovely old town,
