If Zurich would be a flower, it would be an orchid, a bit of sobriety, a bit of openess, generous in its own way.

Chagall in Zurich
In the 1970s, Belarussian-born Marc Chagall created a five-part stained-glass window series and a rosette for the chancel of the Fraumünster church in Zurich. Source: https://www.zuerich.com/en/visit/attractions/chagalls-church-windows
This world-famous masterpiece by Chagall is indeed impressive. Pitty my camera could not fully capture it.
Thank you, Bern
Watch out for the bears and enjoy the lovely Unesco protected Old Town! If Bern would be a flower, it would be a white tulip to me. We also loved the vegan chocolate ice cream by La Golosa.

Ariana Museum in Geneva
The Ariana Museum brings under one roof the City of Geneva’s collections of ceramics and glass. It is the only museum in Switzerland – and one of the most important in Europe – devoted entirely to kilncraft. With over 27’000 objects, the collections illustrate seven centuries of ceramics in Geneva, Switzerland, Europe and the East. All the main techniques are represented: pottery, stoneware, earthenware, porcelain, and china. The islamic collection and an important series of oriental porcelains for export reveal the interactions between East and West which constitute a fundamental truth in the universal history of ceramics. The museum also has examples of work from the 20th century. Built on the initiative of Gustave Revilliod (1817- 1890), the Ariana Museum, with its neo-classical and neo-baroque features, immediately set itself apart from the local architectural style.

If you listen carefully, you might hear the trees sigh as they let them go. Accompanied by an almost imperceptible […]
Thank you Strasbourg
for a sunny day and filterless pics
for my comfy stay at Villa La Florangerie
days of productive meetings with my superb colleagues, new and renewed work connections;
for my superb reunions with my favourite patisserie and chocolaterie owner @patisserie_francois (their vienoiseries are the best, I dare keep saying it)
And the skillful hands of my wonderful reflexologist Joëlle Michelon at http://www.reflexologie-strasbourg.com/
Thanks to all gardeners who keep Orangerie impecable and lovely to enjoy.
Thank you to all who cooked our meals @acantinacompoircorse, @arnauld and @lafignette. And, naturally, for the best to my taste chocolate @maisoncaffet.
The ristretto @cdgairport was a good final note on this trip, served with the sound of a hearty laughter of the barrista.
Merci beaucoup et a la prochaine!
