  Statue at grave of James Joyce, Zurich

(My tribute to my college English dept. head Dr. Mack Smith. Ha ha, I still haven't read Ulysses!)
If you're a fan of James Joyce (I'm not) or you are interested in discovering the graves of famous people while traveling (I am), then take the bus to visit the resting place of the famous author. Unfortunately, I don't remember how I found the cemetery. I do remember, however, that I had no Swiss currency and therefore rode on the bus as a "Schwarzfahrer" or "Black Rider" - not the Lord of the Rings kind, but the kind that pays quite a hefty fine if they had spot-checked tickets that day. Luckily they did not.
