Swiss Girls
Trust me; avoid Swiss girls. I know you are not going to believe me but they always let you down in the end and they don't give a hoot.
Oh, so absolutely true. Pure nightmares, the whole pack of them. And they know it, trust me ...

And avoid the Carneval in Lucerne like the plague. I've heard one can meet up with a dreadful sort of girl there. DO be careful.

And it's good advice to avoid the plague like the Carneval, too!

Re: Sort of New but Not Quite Really

I am moving here soon. I have a child and it is the best child in the world. I think it's name is Scarlet, or William. I can't remember. Will the swiss children pick on it or try to bully it because of how much better behaved and schooled it is? It went to a very posh school at home where they don't force them to learn like they do in those horrible schools here. They practiced organic teaching.

Re: Sort of New but Not Quite Really

Hi, I just found this web site and have been in Switzerland a month.
I arrived in Switzerland last week from Croatia with my Thai girfriend.
Can you explain to me why the landlod needs references and wants a deposit. I find this really unfair; is this normal?
The other question I have is I have managed to get a permit B, can my girlfriend of two weeks get a resident permit?
Oh and not to forget, I didn't like my job washing up and quit it, am I entitled to unemployment benefit and what other benefits can I get?

I can only agree. I came here by mistake when i meant to fly to brazil but got on the wrong plane. I am an islamic serbian gay architect specializing in minarets and since I arrived 35 minutes ago here I have NOT been offered a highly paid job. What do I do ? Do I go to England which I read on a scrap of paper has gone to the dogs so must have or do I look for a flat in the centre of Zurich for under 400 francs a year ?

I tell you, I wish I was back in Somalia, at least the bobbies were honest there.

Maybe the landlord wouldn't have asked for references if you folks had not put that huge "Thai Massage" sign in your window.

Your gf can easily get a resident permit by marrying one of the local politicians. Just ask around for vacancies.

As for benefits, I don't know. I have no time for such because I'm permanently struggling with my laundry schedule. I guess the benefits depend on how the marriage of your gf goes.

How did EF become so compelling and addictive?
I can't comprehend how an on-line environment could take over your life to such an extent that your presence on the internet was more compelling than real life.
Can you put emails on your tombstone?

They are difficult to find sometimes. Best to take your own scrubber if you go there.

I doubt it. When he left here he'd already been married for about a year posting at the same incedible rate as before. I think he spent his honeymoon in an internet cafe.

If you are looking for some home cooking, you might try The Pie Shop in Zurich. I haven't been but I've heard it can change your life .
Hello everybody!
I agree with Mud, never been in the The Pie Shop but heard many time about it... Another place I really love is Babu's Bakery & Coffeehouse (L÷wenstrasse): great cakes, coffees & teas
Btw, im quite new in EF, so happy to join you!!
