The tar in the street starts to melt from the heat And the sweats runnin’ down from my hair I walked 20 miles and I’m dragging my feet And I’ll walk 20 more I don’t care And I’ll wander this world, wander this world Wander this world, wander this world all alone I’m like a ghost some people can’t see Others drive by and stare A shadow that drifts by the side of the road It’s like I’m not even there And I’ll wander this world, wander this world Wander this world, wander this world all alone Well I’ve never been part of the game The life that I live is my own All that I know is that I was born To wander this world all alone, all alone Some people are born with their lives all laid out And all their success is assured Some people work hard all their lives for nothin’ They take it and don’t say a word They don’t say a word Sometimes it’s like I don’t even exist Even God has lost track of my soul Why else would he leave me out here like this To wander this world all alone And I’ll wander this world, wander this world Wander this world, wander this world all alone –Jonny Lang, “Wander This World”

Lowkey Zurich

Lake Zürich, cocktails, and fine dining

We decided to grab a snack, per our guide’s recommendation, at a local wiener joint called Sternen Grill, before enjoying the scenery of Lake Zürich. Although we weren’t quite sure what we ordered, what we got was good – an extra-long sausage you dip in spicy mustard and eat directly, no bread delivery mechanism. Warning:…
