You've got some free time
Stick around. DB's got great stories. Not sure you'd want to reiterate them at your interview, but they're great entertainment for us on EF.

What else happened? The city of Bern hosts Zibelemärit (onion market) every year. This year's festival was held yesterday. When going to work this morning, no evidence of any such party remained. That's typical of every year but you asked about 2017 so there ya go.

The thing is that he is asking a bunch of expats what happened... but anyway: I'd bring up that with Christian Stucki the Unspunnen Schwinget was finally won by a Bernese again.

Re: What's happened in Switzerland in 2017?

I'd also recommend that you brush up on some of the big referendums/initiatives that have taken place over the last few years/ since you've been here. That's what they asked me.

Good luck!

I do like you chose the "Schieber". The word is so versatile and kind of suits the thread

It snowed. It is snowing again today. Good luck with your research.

In fact tell your interviewer you have a large collection of Jass mags.
