Off season

Surprisingly no queues at Mythenquai lido!

Quickly through the changing rooms …

… lockers locked …

The lake is just ahead!

For food and refreshments …

… showers …

… and playgrounds …

… we will come back next year.

Pictures shot at the Strandbad Myhtenquai, Zurich, off season, still open for a pleasurable morning stroll. Click to zoom in each picture.

Via Mala

In 1967 the road tunnel of San Bernardino allowed all-year round traffic between North and South of the Swiss Alps. Earlier, the Via Mala (in Latin, meaning bad path) was the only cross-way available in the area to carriages, horses and later cars. Opened by the ancient Romans, upgraded with two bridges in 1738, nowadays Via Mala is a spectacular pit stop while driving between Canton Grisons and Ticino.

South of the town of Thusis, the Via Mala gorge slightly opens.

The two bridges above the Via Mala gorge. Below in the gorge, the mist from a waterfall of the river Rhine.

The new pedestrian bridges to visit the depths of the gorge, the river Rhine beneath.

Click to zoom in. If you want to visit via Mala by car, arrive between 9 and 10 am to find a parking place and wait until 11am for the spectacular sun light cutting through the shades of the gorge.

Meta art

Sometimes the container outmatches the content, like at the  National Art Center of Tokyo. Designed by Kisho Kurokawa, it is one of the highest symbols of impermanence (as temporary structure) and honesty of materiality (as natural textures) in Japan.

Endless points

Climb up Tokyo Skytree by night for collecting the highest and most glittery view of the city. From the top terrace at 451 m.s.l. endless and colorful light points decorate houses, towers and avenues.
