What I really feel about the Swiss.

Don't be too quick to judge them. Apart from the ones who are in permafrost state.

Swiss can appear very strange and cold initially but when they open up they let everything out like flood gates of three gorges dam (refer to image1). The transition from cold to warm can vary from few months to 20 years though.

You will feel really blessed when they open up to you. It really does feel like a big achievement. It feels similar to what I felt when I climbed top of Mt Everest.

I just wanted to officially say that I absolutely love the Swiss and their beautiful country. Thanks for the last 20 years Switzerland.

Re: What I really feel about the Swiss.

What a way to start the day. Thanks for that M240.

Whether it was fate or fortune that led me to the 50 years I spent with my girl from Thurgau I don't know. She's not here any more but my whole life here has been, and still is, in all respects, WONDERFUL.

So, in other words you're saying that getting to know the Swiss is an achievement of herculean will power, determination & perseverance in the face of adversity?

Want to re-think your metaphor

Maybe I constantly change my opinion, maybe that was never my opinion, maybe I am double brained. Who knows?

Coop crew at Pronto packs my stuff always with a sexy smile. Denner crew is more moody and miserable in my opinion.
