January Visitor

I apologize for the LONG delay in new posts. We've had a busy three weeks, although it's poor excuse for failing to share the details. As of our last post, Henry and I survived our first week without Matt. Quite well. I think he may have been disappointed by our success. Ha.

The second week we had a visitor, my brother Joe. On his way to India, he managed a five day layover in Zurich. The weather wasn't great, so we spent a good amount of time in our flat, cooking, eating and trying the local microbrews available at Avia. We did manage to spend two cloudy days exploring Zurich. Day one, we discovered Museum Reitberg, which, according to their Wikipedia page, is the only Swiss art museum focused on non-European cultures. Joe found great pieces relating to his research and I enjoyed the exhibit on Indian textile art. Beautiful tapestries painted to tell the stories of goddesses draped were across an entire room (photos banned, sorry!).
