British Chinese girl from London to Zurich

Hello forum,

Another new girl from London to Zurich. I moved over at the start of June for work (finance), just me with cat in tow. I speak some German, have spent a lot of time travelling the region, and lived briefly in Munich also. It means that this all feels quite familiar, except 3x the prices

I still have the joy of finding a permanent apartment to come. Having played in London but lived in and loved the greenery of Zone 5 in the sticks, I am hoping to do the same here but with much better scenery and more reliable trains! Flat hunt starts tomorrow, I am looking mostly down the entire left side of the lake down to Freienbach SZ.

A few things I'm still trying to find in the Zurich region:
- a real Sichuan restaurant; I've seen only mixed recommendations
- a year round ice rink (only Wetzikon?)
- adult ballet classes
- knitting wool
- And affordable cauliflower. Seriously. Moving from London, the prices haven't surprised me too much - except the brassicas...

Hope to get to know some of you more!

Welcome to Zurich and fingers crossed for the flat-hunting!
re ballet classes, it depends whether you want to do ballet as workout or for training:
for workout, have a look at: http://www.balletbodysculpture.com/b...es-zurich.html
for training, go to: http://www.ballettschule-ohz.ch/index.php?cat=kontakt (classes for adults in the evening)
I haven't tried either (no time, unfortunately) so this is not a recommendation just a suggestion.
All the best and I hope you settle in soon.

Ahh it's not dimsum I crave, but extremely spicy hotpot. If you're in the area, the Fire Dragon Lounge in Munich is where all the Chinese tour groups in Europe will stop off in their coaches. A 5 hour round trip is just a bit too much, though...
