Hello everyone. Just moved from Geneva to Zurich!!

Hello there. May I take this opportunity to let you know a bit about myself. I have just moved here to Zurich to my new job (begining of September) from Geneva where I worked for a shipping and trading company in the legal department for 2.5 years. I was born in England but I was brought up in Greece for most of my life from 5 years old until 17 years old when I went back to England to study for my Bachelor and Master's degree for 4 years all together and then moved to Geneva and now I am here in Zurich. I am surprised that Zurich is so much different from Geneva. It's like I've moved to another country completely. I feel as if I am in Germany.

Anyway...That a bit about me and thanks. I have found lots of answers to my questions on this forum.

Xairetai xairetai Mary.Indeed this place is full of Germans. In Geneva at least most of the non-Swiss were from all over the world.
