Zurich, the beginning

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 10:59 AM

Yesterday I ate breakfast in Haifa, Israel. Today I ate breakfast on the shore of the Lake of Zurich, Switzerland, watching a swan swim by. Life is good sometimes.

The flight was uneventful. The plane was full, but I had a relatively comfortable aisle seat and a non-annoying person in the seat next to me. I even got some work done, mostly reading papers (e.g. An I/O Architecture for Mikrokernel-Based Operating Systems) and patent filings (yuck). Once I got tired of work I watched half of Coach Carter, which was mind numblingly simplistic, but in a good way.

(got to call in for a conference call now; more later)

    …and other times, you have to eat breakfast in Haifa.

      Hehe, I guess I set myself up for that one 🙂
      Not that Haifa is so bad… I had an excellent “cheese burekas” from a small bakery I recently discovered on the way to work.
