I am off to Zurich on Saturday, presumably to attend a friend's wedding, but I'll be sure to get there a few hours before the church service so I can tour a couple of flea markets and make the most of the train ticket (not to mention an almost six-hour return journey). I can't help it; I feel a journey is wasted if I don't take advantage of it to sniff out some retro tech sightings, even if I don't end up buying anything. I have high hopes for Zurich, as Lausanne ended up being quite sleepy, despite the rather exciting retrieval of my Singer Featherweight. Their flea market yielded only one typewriter:
this one, in fact - but the seller claimed he could not open it and did not care to interrupt his conversation with his colleague about their upcoming pizza lunch to help us figure it out. Now that I see the Typo on Typewriter House Collector's site, I'm a bit bummed I didn't get to take a picture of it, as it is certainly photogenic!
I have a lot of typing to catch up on, but since I'll be on the train for six hours this weekend, I plan to revive my fountain pens for a couple of long-overdue letters and perhaps even a pencast or two. Happy Friday (in advance), all!
