Hi from Software Engineer from Washington

Hi, since it's the place to introduce ourselves, here it is. I am software engineer from Washington (not DC, Gog forbid, Washington state), got an International assignment here in Zurich and trying to figure out the ways to live/survive here. Not sure why I picked Werebear as my alias, maybe because a few times right before moving here me and my wife met bears on a our favorite trails back there near Seattle. This forum happened to be full of valuable information, so I decided to register and contribute when I can. That's it.

to EF!

If you like trails, there are 60,000 kilometers of signposted hiking trails in Switzerland! No bears though ... some will consider this a feature, others a bug

I just read how the Swiss shot M13's predecessor, JJ3 (can they not come up with better name the miserable bastards).
Sadly, I don't fancy M13ís chances. If the Yanks went around shooting the few remaining bears there would be an outcry.......

Ok, we'll check M13 if we'll get nostalgic, otherwise thanks for the heads up :-)

Re: Hi from Software Engineer from Washington

Werebear! I'm from Washington (State. Go Geoducks!) too, moving to Zurich in January. I don't think I can be super helpful with Zurich tips, but if you and your wife want to hang out sometime I think my hubby and I will be looking for friends soon My sweetie is a dev, too, so I'm sure you guys can geek out together.

Also, once I've sniffed out your politics I have tons of great things to say about the paradise WA turned into on Nov. 7th this year. It's sad to leave, really.I guess that tells you all about my politics

Re: Hi from Software Engineer from Washington

The Swiss don't know where Washington State is. However, mention the word Seattle and they light up.

I'm a bonafide cougar myself.
