Asian American-Canadian new to EF & Switzerland.

Hi my name is Giovani and I'm Indonesian with Canadian green card, grew up in the USA. I just finished college from Texas and starting a new job in Switzerland [Mod: Name of country edited]. I live in Zug and very new to the country. Looking for anybody to hang out and maybe show me around as well as having fun. Oh, and Im bilingual english/bahasa and I speak a little german and spanish.

So... How exactly do you have a "green card" when, as far as I know, Canada doesn't issue such things - and at the least, one must be in the country to maintain ownership?

Spent some years growing up there too, so we had permanent resident status

From what you described, are you sure you still have that? I think your 5 years in the states may have killed it...

I'm not trying to call you out on it or anything, it just hit me as odd.
