We made it! Jet-lagged in Winterthur

We finally made it to Zurich International Airport this morning at about 8 o'clock local time after a long and very tiring flight overseas from Atlanta...
We took a charter bus from the airport after meeting up with Armin and headed to the Schweizerische Technische Fachschule Winterthur (STF) where we will be staying for the next 3 weeks, each person paired up with another in some pretty cozy rooms. After a brief unpack we headed off to the city to get a grip on the layout of the town we're staying in, with Armin giving us a lightning rundown of the highlights of the city as we headed to the classroom to have a formal introduction on the design project at hand. Jetlag was the story of today though, with each activity seeming like it would never end and everyone fighting as best they can to stay awake as we took in the beautiful scenery and architecture that this city has to offer.
