Happy New Year!!

We had an awesome first new year in Zurich. We were lucky enough have some friends visiting from the US, so early in the day we toured around town with them.

Every year during the holidays the city decorates Bahnhofstrasse (the main street in Zürich), so we made sure to stay out past dusk

Then later on we had a little get-together with our old friends and our new friends here in Zurich. A bit before midnight we headed down to the lake (which is conveniently just a few blocks from our apartment) to see the fireworks display, which was really fantastic.
The Swiss seem to be quite reserved- we were definitely the loud Americans when the clock struck midnight.

Getting the champagne ready...
Matt & Derek toasting to midnight, college style.
