In Zuerich ist der Baer Los! (The bears are out in Zurich...)

Overnight, Zurich has been decorated with 645 bear statues - i have to say most of them are a bit twee for my taste! It's the tourist office's attempt to brand the city, not quite sure that bears are the right way to go...

According to their website...The city and surrounding region will be invaded by hundreds of almost human-size teddies – artistically designed teddies, sitting and standing, alone and in pairs, big and small, displayed in both prominent and out-of-the-way locations. These lovable creatures are guaranteed to captivate the hearts of everyone who sees them, whether children or adults, guests or locals, vacationers or business travelers.

Teddy Summer runs from May 23 - 18 September, and I feel a bear book release challenge coming on!
I'll take some photos and keep posting them here, so you can laugh in sympathy ;-)</p>
