Awesome !!!

At the train station in Zurich, we were met by a charming, slender Innochka with huge blue eyes. The route of the excursion was composed very competently. First, they looked at the city from observation platforms, and then they walked the whole city through the streets and streets. Excellent knowledge of history, curiosity, indifference and interest in what she does have made acquaintance with the city interesting and memorable. He knows the history of every house, street, square. The innocent is very erudite, thinking with her civic stance, of course, she cannot but like it. If in Zurich, then only with Inna! Sincerely, Anna and Elena, grateful for a wonderful day in Zurich
