Sea tales

Segesta (Sestri Levante) is the queen of fairy tales: Hans Christian Handersen visited the town in 1833. He found about the local myth of Segesta, the mermaid, and her lover, the Triton. In 1837 published his most famous fairy tale ever: The Little Mermaid. He also named the western bay of Sestri Levante as “Fairy tales bay”. Since 1998, every year in June, Sestri Levante celebrates the Handersen literature prize.

Schanzegraben walkthrough

We previously had a quick look at Schanzegraben…did we miss anything behind?

Schanzegraben peculiar zigzag line follows the former ramparts through the city .

Clean and calm waters allow for a variety of sports like Kanu polo.

In the past, Schanzengraben was an unattractive factory canal: nowadays it harbors boats with access to lake Zurich

Venice or Schanzegraben?

And finally out of the canal to see the lake again, through a under-bridge passage placed below the lake level.

Wrong flight?

A last check at the departures …

… and here are the planes ready to fly us to …

… or are these ones?

Hard to image a flight on those up there …

Now they are landing, leaving the airspace free …

… to the right one! Not all Swiss-flagged flights are Swiss. Patrouille Suisse made the air show!  Pictures shot at the 70 years celebration of Zurich Airport. Click to enlarge and see the pilot smile.
