Temperatures have suddenly started rising. Snowflakes turned into raindrops killing the fluffy white layer on the streets and roofs, just leaving a sludgy, grey mass: despicable mud of the worst sort. The rain has turned the town into an apocalyptic wasteland. If anyone remembers a day Zurich has looked more obscene, let me know. On such a day, I seek shelter from reality in the abstract beauty that this town also is blessed with. The apocalypse needn’t be an ugly event.
