Though the Swiss would not be described as a very religious people, the Sabbath is standing strong. With the exception of restaurants and stores in the train stations, shops are closed on Sunday which creates a noticeable sense of calm. The city just seems still and quiet in comparison to the rest of the week.
We'd like to keep our Sabbaths quiet with the emphasis on time at church and time at home when we leave here. So if any of you see me at Target some Sunday in the future, send me home.
