guardian angel II

Every single day, this little old woman stands in the exact same spot at the Zurich HB (train station). I've heard that she goes there to pray for all travelers and to send out her blessings to passers-by. Most people don't even notice she's there. Every once in a while a well-wisher will stop by and give her a small gift, like a flower, some chocolates, or a jar of jam, as a token of appreciation.

Oh wow, I've never noticed her. I can't actually make out the exact location. Is she there at a certain time? I agree with tanty: a very touching post.

z- she's there pretty much all day. If you are leaving the main hall and walking towards the platforms, she is a little to the left, between some ticket vending machines and a cash machine. more or less in front of platforms 6 & 7 I think

What a charming story Ainz.

Great picture, I just love it!

While I'm here I thought I'd let you know that I have moved my site on to Wordpad, unfortunately that means it's time to update those links again.......sorry.

The Wiki that you can use to copy and paste the links into your template/sidebar is very simple and usefull.

I was delighted to see she was still there on my return to Zurich in February. I first saw her back in 2001.
