Zurich, Switzerland Day 9

I came to Swiss National Museum yesterday but they close on Mondays so finally I was able to get in today! The historic buildings were built in 1898 and they kept good old European construction style. 昨日、スイス国立博物館に来たら定休日でお休みだったので、今日もう一度来ました。1898年に建てられた建物は古き良きヨーロッパ建築を楽しめます。

Beautiful through the window, even. 窓を通して見ても素敵。
This is a great place to learn European cultural history. Great exhibition. ヨーロッパ文化の歴史を知るにはもってこいの場所。展示物が多岐に渡っていて楽しかった。

Hmmm, very interesting. The antlers are 3D!

Some sweets from a great bakery in downtown.ダウンタウンにあるケーキ屋さんで。

At our hotel restaurant, Filini. Seared tuna bruschetta and crab sauce pasta. 又もや滞在ホテルのレストランFilini。あぶりマグロのブルシェッタと蟹のパスタ。
This was not the same day but probably the third visit at the same restaurant. My main course, chicken+tomato sauce and Steven's scallops. これは又別の日の食事。私のメインコース、グリルチキンのトマトソースとStevenのホタテ。

The food at this restaurant is VERY good but their service is VERY slow. It usually needs more than 2.5hours by the time we leave. Is this so called European style? このレストランはとてもおいしいのだけどサービスがとても遅い。お勘定をして席を立つまで2.5時間以上はかかる。ヨーロッパスタイルか?
