3. Bring tampons.
You've lived in Switzerland for this long and don't know they sell tampons???

Every supermarket and pharmacy has them.

You don't need to bring any passport photos with you. There is a photo booth outside of every office that requires passport photos, not to mention the photo booth inside the Lausanne Flon metro stop. Done. Easy.
But what??? At a photo booth in Switzerland??? They will cost him for months rent!!!

4. Bring deodorant bar soap, if you normally use something like Irish Spring. The only bar soap here is really frou-frou and made out of olive oil.
There are like 20 different bars of soap. I'm sure he'll find one that is normal. But I agree on plain deodorant. Bring that.

I don't know where you live, exactly, but here in Lausanne there are at least 25 photo booths around the city and you get 6 photos for 8 francs. If that is one month's rent for you then I need to move in with you!

If I were you I'd bring an extra sense of humour because Swiss officialdom will certainly have destroyed your original one within a couple of weeks
