Re: socio-political and economics Switzerland vs. Austria

Austrian food is much better and cheaper then the swiss. The culture is better in austria as they austrians pay more in the arts. I wonder why I am living here?

Re: socio-political and economics Switzerland vs. Austria

Most modern Swiss and Austrians don't care about history as much as some forum members. Few Swiss really think of the Habsburgs when they think of Austria... and to prove the point that they are actually from Aargau: notice the white socks...



My favourite stereotypes:

Austrian: "Zurich might be a bit bigger than the central cementary of Vienna, but it's far less lively".

Swiss (imitating an Austrian accent): "We ain't brave, but we sure are pretty"...
