are you saying you do?
I do, but I'm not a communist so I don't have a chip on my shoulder about it.

I do hope not. One does hate to socialise with the poor. One never know what one might catch.

So was I, but life throws you all sorts of situations. ... Good luck. If it works out, it can be bliss.
Thanks MusicChick, and everyone else who's pitched in. I realise it's annoying having to answer these questions for the millionth time, but neither my wife nor I have ever even BEEN to Geneva, so when they gave me the number I thought it sounded pretty good but had no real idea what it meant. And to make our move even more interesting, my wife is pregnant and has terrible morning sickness...

You might want to check how the insurance is going to take that... will they take her if it's semi-private or private?

I haver thought about such things and don't know how it works but you might want to do think about it since it will probably affect you directly (tell HR as soon as you can).


Congratulations and good luck!

I forgot...

There are quite a bit Singaporeans in Geneva, let me know if you haven't developed a grudge against them and we will have a drink.

Hi Terco. Sorry for not getting back to you for ages. And for all its foibles, we'll always have a soft spot for Singapore and Singaporeans. After all, it's the Geneva of Asia, right?
