Capetonian addition to St. Gallen

Hi Everyone

Not so new to Switzerland but new to St. Gallen 'thought I will drop by to say hello.

Love love Cape Town but also love the mountains in Switzerland and a few other things here. I have one child and one more on the way and am married to the greatest man:-)

Fun facts: There are about 1900 South Africans living in Switzerland and just over 9000 Swiss in South Africa of which 2500 lives in Cape Town

Regards
Jolie

Re: Capetonian addition to St. Gallen

I was seriously impressed with how it has been cleaned up. I was there 5 years ago and it was dodgy. Guys tikking on every corner, the city bowl smelled of piss and it didn't feel at all safe.

I was there in Feb and back in April and what a difference! I don't know if it was the World Cup, the Mayor or the shoot-to-kill command from the top cop, but Cape Town is clean and sexy all over again!

Welcome to Sankt Gallen!
We've only been here a couple of months but we really like it, it's got a lot to offer.
