My son has one of those in London and it's wonderful and worth every penny. Just wish I could find one in Lausanne.

Maybe I will be the crazy passenger that carries the thing on to the plane. Ok, maybe also depends on how big it is.

mediamarkt.
I believe I saw some in Manor recently also.

Personally, I'd rather have a ceiling fan, I believe they're more versatile.

Oooh thanks! I do have a manor near me, will check it out. Ceiling fans are nice. I used it a lot in the US actually. But I think a floor fan is more suitable for my situation. I am planning to stay here for 2-3 years only, plus I would have to hire a handyman to install the ceiling fan and ask my landlord if it is A-OK, right? argghhh

Yes, kinda... I've heard tell of a handyman or two around these parts (meaning the forum in general - Papa Goose comes to mind, but I think there are a couple others as well) who can help with ceiling fans and suchlike.

So far as getting permission from landlord, most of the living quarters I've seen here come with wiring for ceiling fixtures, you shouldn't need to ask permission, unless you plan to leave it behind at the end of your stay. You'll "need" to hook up lights anyhow so you may as well put a ceiling fan up there.

For those who don't know how a fan works:
http://science.howstuffworks.com/nat...question70.htm
not convinced that is right. i suspect it is more to do with evaporation. anyone with 3 thermometers can experimentally verify:

- set up one thermometer without fan blowing
- set up one thermometer with fan blowing on it
- set up one thermometer with fan blowing on it but dip it first in room temperature water
