Don't even ask what this was all about, because I have absolutely no idea. I spotted this man in drag sporting a humongous, um, afro (?) with an oversized bow, strutting down Bahnhofstrasse at lunch time. This certainly earned him some strange looks from passersby (check out the old guy in the second picture). It must have been a photo shoot for something because there was a professional photographer and a woman who kept on stopping to fix and touch up his, uh, wig. The funniest part was when the guy walked by the Bulgari (jewelry) store, stopped in his tracks and squealed (yes, he squealed) , "oooh, Bulgari! I loooooove Bulgari!!" The photographer had to urge him to move along.
- I speak 4 1/2 languages, German being the half language (more like only 1/4 language) because I find it so incredibly difficult. The others were easy peasy in comparison.
- I know how to knit, but nothing more complicated than a scarf or a hat...
- My immediate family is scattered across 3 different continents.
- My left foot is slightly bigger than my right foot.
- I don't know how to whistle.
- When I was little, I used to be terrified of dogs. I used to run away from them screaming and crying, and of course they would chase after me. Somehow I got over that, and now I really want a pet dog.
- I learned how to snowboard when I came to Switzerland, but I'm still scared of speed.
- I have two passports.
These are the rules:
- Link to your tagger and post these rules.
- List eight (8) random facts about yourself.
- Tag eight (or three or four) people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
- Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving them a comment on their blogs.
Now it's my turn to tag a few other bloggers. I'm only tagging 4 people because most other Daily Photo Bloggers I checked have already been tagged by someone else...

Pictured here is Zürich’s Friedhof Fluntern cemetery, in the Zuriberg hills, next to the zoo. I really like the idea of placing a stone on top of the tombstone, marking one's visit. On a clear day, you can see the Alps from here.
a really sweet tombstone ornament
...lots of flowers...
