On our last afternoon in Zürich, Rory and A and I met up with A's aunt, uncle, and cousin at the Kunsthaus. After spending three days mostly surrounded by medieval and early modern visual culture, I was ready to see more modern art and wander around looking at pieces I actually recognized. Of course, we ended up taking more time in the medieval rooms anyway, but I still got some time with Van Gogh and Monet, so all was okay.
Looking back on our trip to Zürich two weeks ago, I can think of two things: the conference I talked about in my last post, and the end of summer. It was very, very hot and very, very sunny the entire time we were there... and then it plummeted in temperature a few days after we got back. Consequently, all my pictures from Zürich are very bright. You can see my favorite shots below:
