Re: New in Zürich

Take a language course make friends. Join a meetup group and make friends. Join a workout class. Anything that meets regularly is great. Go for walks around your neighborhood and say grüezi to people you make eye contact with. Zürich is an increasingly international city. You’ll eventually find people in your same situation.

Are you off your rocker! People in Zürich don't make eye contact and certainly not gruezi! They will think she is a hooker if she looks them at them directly.
