A Mexican in Switzerland

Hi everyone, my name is Ruben. I was born in Mexico, but I have lived in the US for the last 17 years. I will be moving to Switzerland the first week in September, and I am looking forward to connecting with other people.

Gracias por la bienvenida. (Thanks for the welcome). My fiancée is from Switzerland but we met in the US. I went to visit her and meet her family back in July and I am now ready to make the big move. I am looking forward to it, and it is good to know that there is such an active expat community.

Re: A Mexican in Switzerland

Be warned- a third of those you meet will be after anything that you have to offer in the way of margaritas, tacos, salsa, pinatas, tequila etc. A third will be spying on you and reporting your movements with the local police unless you have registered with the Gemeinde and announced why you are in their neighborhood. The remaining third will be doing both.

Only joking- good luck!

Gracias por la bienvenida. It's good to know that there are other paisanos in the forum. I am trying to figure out what kind of things I need to stock up with before I leave the US. Mexican products that may be hard to find once I get there or that may be too expensive. Any suggestions?

That would cover everything. All mexican products are either hard to find or way too expensive. I have to check a store near my flat that is supposed to have mexican products. Saw it a few weeks ago. If it's still there they might have better prices as El Maiz. I will let you guys know.
