Dance: Cure For Homesickness

 

Are you home sick? (and by this i mean sick of home?) Are the four walls of your «home office» closing in on you? Do you miss the clubs and dancing the night away? (Of course you do!) Then get along to the Wild Walk, arranged by Tanzhaus Zurich. In small groups (max 5) you can dance your way through the city to a specially designed DJ set. What a great way to enjoy the rather unusual clement weather we are having.

Enjoy handling balls? Then you’re gonna love this. Grain Glow have some fantastic vegan snack ball mixes on offer at the minute. Simply add a drop of (plant based,) milk to the mix, give it a stir and roll into a ball. Healthy, yummy and vegan. What more could you ask for?

Exhibition: A Surprisingly Bloody History

 

Want to know a bit more about Switzerland? Personally i find the history of this wonderful country to be fascinating especially as people in this part of the world spent hundreds of years knocking seven bells out of each other. If you are interested in learning more then the Landesmuseum are presenting a virtual tour called, somewhat unsurprisingly, «History of Switzerland».

Crowdify Projekt: Cyclepath Spectrum

 

Environment friendly, fun & cheap. No, i’m not talking about myself but, in my opinion, the best way of getting around this fair city. I am of course talking about bicycles. But riding a «velo» is not without risks especially as Zurich still hasn’t properly instigated a cycle path network. Well, Popup.Velowege.Jetzt! are crowdfunding a campaign to pressurise the city government with open letters published in Zurich’s newspapers. If you can give them a bit of support then we're on the right track to make the city a bit safer and a bit greener.

Shopping tip: Brand New Secondhand Bookstore

 

Need a good book to see you through to the end of the lockdown? Then i can recommend the second hand book store «Bücherzelle» who have a great concept for trading books. Not only are the prices very low, (for Switzerland anyways,) but they donate 10% of the proceeds to good causes, (at the moment for school children in Nepal,) But that’s not all. They also have a pretty good English section.

Web tip: Snowflake Generation

 

When i read «Snowflake Generator» i thought it was a mating ritual for millenials. But the snowflake generator website (by artist Vivian Wu) actually generates your own personalised snowflake which you can download. I found it amazingly relaxing and a welcome distraction from what i was supposed to be doing i.e. work.
