Although I did some posting this past week, in truth, I was traveling for work and posting from there at odd hours, thanks to jet lag and my inability to sleep on airplanes. I went to Europe on business and my first stop was Schaffhausen, Switzerland. I'd been to Zurich before some years back but not to Schaffhausen. I didn't have much time (I was there to work after all, ha) but I flew in a day early to (theoretically) get over the jet lag before I had to show up in the office. I had a chance to walk around Schaffhausen for a few hours, partly because I was looking for our office and partly because I like exploring new grounds on foot. It turned out that the hotel had given me the wrong directions to the office so I ended up covering more of Schaffhausen on foot than I had intended. But it was all good since it gave me a chance to leisurely explore the area. Walking along the Rhine was pure poetry because it was a beautiful day with cool temps and the sun shining.
Around my hotel, there were a lot of little cute shops but since I was walking around on a Sunday, many of them were closed. I did happen upon some restaurants, one of which I patronized for lunch and a gelato shop where I availed myself of the gelato.

And I must give props to the Flughafen Zurich because they had an inordinate amount of chocolate shops that I must applaud. Even down to the classy chocolate button proclaiming your location on the gelato from the Lindt store.
