The next connecting flight was not for almost 2 hours . This put landing in Paris at the beginning of rush hour with less then an hour to clear customs, collect our bag and make the 50 minute trip across Paris to the train , then find the right train . when we reached customs there were only about 10 people ahead of us and there were about 5 or 6 windows open , then on to the baggage ,, if your bag was not there it would have taken two long to fill out the report... fortunately about the 4th bag on the baggage belt was ours .. so we were off running .. We ran out the door and and some one pointed and yelled bus this way taxi that way .. three steps later a young man was waiting and raced us out to his car ,, asked where we were going and looked at the traffic and said "its 55 minutes , how much time do you have ?" We told him 45 minutes .. he said lets do this , and we were out of there in a flash .. racing through traffic and checking our train departure track on the fly so that he could drop us as close as possible . When we got to the station he took a road that went down under the station and drooped us off in front of an elevator and said go up one floor and you will be at your track ...10 minutes before the trains boarding ... Now we could breath ,,
It was a beautiful trip through the country side on the train .
and we arrived at the train station at the exact time we were scheduled .. oh the wonders of world travel. It was so nice to see Iris , Her apartment is the one with all the ivy in the balcony.
We have done a lot of walking the last two days as we have seen so much of Zurich
this morning we started the day at the English coffee club where we had coffee and visited in English with friends of Iris
We have been invited for breakfast at the home of one of the men tomorrow morning .
We then went down town to see about getting a Swiss watch for Jenish ... I found some very nice watches for between $50 000 and $64 000 ... humm maybe we should look for a Swiss Army Knife .. or maybe a Toblarone bar
Lots more walking , and seeing some beautiful sights along the way . Tomorrow we will have breakfast out at our new friends , then we will take the train back to Paris at 3:00
