The food is superb
But the chef is on strike now.

Re: Got a haiku on your Swiss experience? Post it here!

Switzerland sounds great!
Working night and day to earn
money to travel

Someday soon I will
Switzerland will be my home
I really can't wait!

"They" tell me learn high-
German - is more simple I
disagree- smile!

EF is good you
give me a lot of advice
living Switzerland.

Food was plentiful.

Hiking Chli Aubrig
Picture postcard scenery
Lakes, cows, hills, mountains.

Clothes dirty, sweaty.
Swiss laundry rota in force

Here's to wash your clothes:
Hang outside, sprinkle powder
And wait for the rain

The postcards don't lie.
How do you get green meadows
if you have no rain?

Bins out correctly?
Food bought too expensively?
But would you go home?

Not on a Sunday
This would upset the neighbours
....and that's against the rules
