Introducing...me!

Hi everyone- My name is Rena and I've recently moved to the Lake Zurich area with my husband who has started a job at the Zurich International School. We relocated from San Francisco so I am looking forward to learning a good deal about life in Switzerland on this forum! I'll happily share anything I learn here as well.

Thanks!

Welcome Welcome, Where in SF you from? I used to live in PacHieghts for a few years. Weather here is about the same only less windy! I hope you guys have a good move and transition. What kind of work did you do back in the Bay?

Re: Introducing...me!

..and so the adventure begins! Welcome!

I moved here from the South Bay (Los Altos)...thought I'd stay a year or two...that was over 20 years ago. Watch out, this place can grow on you.
