You can even get vinegar for your chips!!
Yes, I said that before, but it's worth saying again!

Actually, just thought of something else I get 'imported' ... Brut deodorant sticks. Seriously.
Must be going to the wrong pubs. Pickwicks has vinegar.

You can pick up Brut deodorant sticks at Hyper-U in Sierentz (5 minutes from Basel) for about 1.90 EUR

Oh, sorry. I misread that... you said you CAN get vinegar. Ignore me.

Assuming you are a Nanny, you might want to ask your wealthy employers to start paying you a proper Swiss wage. Then, you would have no reason to complain about the price of water.
What I get paid has nothing to do with it. I just object to paying for a glass of warm tap water if I need to take medication. They give me dirty looks if I pull out my water bottle in a restaurants.

Nothing to be sorry about (although Perth's cool, too) -- it's just that the Sunday arvo sesh is such a fixture in Perth. I haven't really heard the term used so much in Sydney.

Hmm interesting, maybe I picked up the saying from my time bending bananas.....

Back to NSW - sitting at the Beach Road Hotel or Bunga Bar in summer with a few jugs is definitely on the "I miss" list.
