Hi PK

I live in Zurich and I think you did well. You were lucky with the weather as we had sooo much rain lately😉

Now I have some constructive criticism as well: You probably didn't know that, but in Switzerland you need the consent of people to take pictures of them, even in public places. To post pictures of people that are recognisable without expressed consent is in violation of our law. The waiter and the swan feeder seem fine with your actions, the lady with the umbrella and the passers by the Limmat not so much.

My advice for all travellers: Check this link to make sure it is OK to photograph people:

Or, and even better: Do not use tele lenses and talk to people and ask them for permission.

I'd call it cynical. The new anti-terror laws are something to be ashamed of. But this is not the place to discuss this. And it does not change my suggestion that one should respect local laws. This is something where one can contribute personally.
