I moved to Zurich to start a new life as a PhD student at ETH Zurich computer science department.
I am a 31 years old single dude. I have spend the last decade of my life in the US: First as a graduate student in Amherst, MA and then as a software engineer in Boston. I have lived in the bay area (silicon valley) since the past 18 months. I am originally an Indian but I choose to self identify as an American
I miss ‘home’ , the perks of being a tech worker in the valley, beautiful Californian weather, the diversity of east and west coasts. (and I could go on !).
Its been a few days in Zurich and I think I am adjusting okay. I am looking for company to go hiking, socialising and improving my German. I signed up for the usual suspects on meetup.com but have to yet to check out other local forums.
I read through the recent introductions in this forum and its encouraging that there are so many people like me.
