OMG! I checked everywhere into every detail to see whether there is a gravestone in or around my place!! As you know, buildings here are quite ancient. When i looked for some places to stay as i just moved to Switzerland, i can see most of the apartmens are built in 1950' or 1960'. That's quite amazing! In some developing countries, let's say, China, you can hardly find such old buildings in cities. If there are any, they must be some residences for some famous persons or some sight-seeing spots. Chinese people, they can construct a high-rise building in 2 days. No exaggeration, you can watch the video on Youtube

Anyway, a gravestone around my place, that will definitely freaks me out. Maybe i should check with the landlord if there was anyone lived as well as passed away in my place.

Hope you sleep well in the night
Average residential buildings in Zurich are from between 1870 and 1950, so that I regard the NEW ones of between 1950 and now as NEW ones. But there, mostly in the Kreis 1, many such buildings built between 1700 and 1870 !


And, being born in 1950, I want to have it clarified, I am NOT "ancient", but at worst "antique"

I guess the idea of getting your ash compressed into an artifical diamond is not for you then... Swiss innovation btw: http://www.algordanza.org/Home.aspx
You can do the same for pets.
