Yesterday: Omaha-Detroit-Amsterdam

Either Amsterdam has a remarkably confusing airport, or it's just too early in the morning (6:00am MESZ) for my brain to function. Fairly short hop to Zürich.

Taxi driver Bernd Müller was ready and waiting for us, and chatted all the way to Konstanz. He was very excited to hear that I was touring breweries, as the Ruppaner Brauerei is in his neighborhood, and he spends a lot of time in the Biergarten there.

Arrived at the Hotel Bayrische Hof at 10:00, two hours before our room was ready, so we dropped off our bags and strolled around the Altstadt. Ended up at the Bahnhof Gaststätte for breakfast - our third of the day, if airplane food counts - and a couple glasses of Rothaus Pils. Went back to the hotel around noon for a couple hours' sleep.

Walked to Brauhaus Johann Albrecht, about 700 meters across the Altstadt from the hotel. Good food and good beer, better than the one in Düsseldorf that we visited three years ago.
