Argentinian girl that ended up in Zürich!

Hello everybody!

I've been reading and taking some tips from this forum for quite some time now, so I decided it was time to introduce myself and start interacting a bit around here (instead of just quietly watching from afar!)

So my story is the following: My name is Andrea, I'm 25 years old and I'm currently a PhD Student in Computer Science at ETHZ. It all started in March 2008 when I got accepted for a scholarship to go and finish my master's degree in France. After 2 years of adapting to France (which is cool but it's a whole different story) and learning how to master the complicated subtleties of French language, I got accepted to start my PhD here in Zürich. So here I am after 8 months.. trying now to master the complicated subtleties of Swiss-german language.. which is not really working out for me since I barely understand the basics of high german.. But I'm not giving up Adapting to all the strict (and sometimes crazy) rules.. that might be a whole different thing! But I hope with some help around here I can survive without getting any huge fine or thrown into prison (or kicked out of the country by some crazy SVP guys) :P

Anyway, if somebody wants to become friends.. just say hi!

Re: Argentinian girl that ended up in Zürich!

Also I forgot to say that as far as hobbies go, I really love music. I like classic rock, classic metal, and classical music.. all the classics! I guess Zürich is not that bad for me.. tonight I'm going to see Roger Waters (yay!!). I also love painting and I've already been to the Kunsthaus which is really nice.. but I would gladly go again if I find some art lovers that would like to go too.
I also used to sing in a choir back in Argentina so I'm currently looking for something like this around here (if somebody has any tips...).

Paco. You can make it in your kitchen. Seriously, you expats need to learn to make the things from home that you miss!

Decently priced high quality beer? That's a tough one to brew by yourself.
