I am from India and just moved here. Looking to meet some interesting people and make friends. Open to catch up over a coffee or a beer. Love to travel and experiment with new stuff and enjoy the new cultures and experiences. As I said Boring!

You've heard of the Transformers?

Re: Another boring man moving to Zurich

Robots in disguise, Optimus Prime...? Still don't understand the teacher connection unless you mean that teachers have to be able to function as different things simultaneously; often have to act as mentors to troubled teens and occasionally save the world?

And it can be nearer 13 weeks with disaggregated training days...

you can't be that bad, since
a) you've moved to this wonderful country and
b) your introduction post has attracted so much attention to quickly that, well, we want to meet you and see how boring you can be. Welcome to the Forum!

Almost exactly what I say to folks suggesting it's an easy gig with short days and long breaks. Usually at the airport in August.

But not everyone likes to work at least 6 days a week, bring work home in the evenings and also during their holidays - the first days of which are often spent in an exhaustion-fuelled stupor. In my experience anyway.

The Picture shows one of the boring tools for the new St.Gotthard/SanGottardo rail-tunnel https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gottha...thardachse.png which will , in combination with the Monte Ceneri Basis-Tunnel, heavily reduce the travel time enroute to Lugano and Milano

Re: Another boring man moving to Zurich

A tool can be exciting.

I have a rather fabulous hand-held blender, for example.

all CH TV channels had Teams there for a Long time. Those Teams will be REsent in about a years time


While Airolo will become a ghost town, Arth-Goldau and Biasca will become regional cities. An travellers will have the Chance to commute between ZRH Airport and Milano Malpensa within some two hours. And Zurigo and Milano will become REAL twin cities, with Lugano as a Suburb of both


AND, it will finish the conquest of the TICINO
