Lausanne here I come!!

Salut. My name is Jeff and I am moving to Lausanne for 3 months starting the middle to end of February. I am really excited but also nervous. I am working on beginners french. I am looking for work, part time to full time is ok. I am a certified jewelry professional. I am trained in diamonds, gemstones, and precious metals. If i could work with jewelry i would be happy. . Other than that, i am looking for friends, people to go get a beer with, work on french with, and to hang out with. It's going to be a shock, and i think i will be ready. Until we meet. Jeff

Re: Lausanne here I come!!

Hi Jeff, Welcome to the forum. The good news is that Swiss winters are MUCH warmer than what youre used to in the Dakotas....

The bad news is that there are no big statues of presidents or rebel Indians.

Do you do any work with uncut roughs? Or are you only a polished stone kind of guy? What is your french level? Have you ever bought bulk gold (flakes nuggets etc,) as opposed to junk gold?

Good luck on your move!

Re: Lausanne here I come!!

Thank you so much. It's nice to hear from someone who knows about my home area. Unfortunatly I am leaving North Dakota near the end of the the coldest part of winter. oh well. I don't deal with rough uncut gems at all. I am more of a buyer and sell of jewelry, although i have alot of experience in buying gold, silver, and platinum, in all it's forms. But i like to think i have an eye for diamonds. My french, umm, I'm learning. Like i said I will have beginners french down before I get there. I would to know more, but 3 1/2 months isn't long to learn a language.
