Leaving Switzerland - Zurich Airport

On Sunday morning we rise early to prepare for our trip back to Philadelphia. US Air has a direct flight - US 711 - from Zurich to Philly which has since been suspended. Our trip to the airport is basically a reverse course from our arrival. We take the city bus at the Cantonschule to the train station in Winterthur. We board one of the many local or intercity trains from Winterthur to Zurich, which all stop at the Zurich Airport.

The airport at Zurich had some interesting features to look out for and enjoy. The inter-terminal train has Swiss cow sound effects. You are serenaded at various stops by mooing cows. There is also a Lindt Boutique du Chocalat where a Maître Chocolatier creates chocolate confections while we and others watch transfixed. My wife buys some alcohol infused chocolates for our friends and I stock up on one of my guilty pleasure foods - white chocolate.

By late morning the flight leaves on time and after a nine hour flight we are back in Philadelphia by mid-afternoon to an unwelcome traffic problem on I-95. But nothing can replace the warm feelings for our Swiss relatives and new friends. "Uf widerluege" to Switzerland and "merci vilmal.”
