New in Zug!

Hi!

Well, from my registration date I'm actually not very new, but I thought to do a proper, overdue introduction

I'm a 28 years old guy from Egypt, married, and have a little 5 months old baby girl. I arrived here on January 6th to work as a front-end developer at an interesting Swiss startup.

I have lived in Saudi Arabia for the first 11 years of my life, and later in USA for about a year in 2012. My first month here is similar to my first month in the states, yet it's very different! It's similar in a way that everywhere is green! (vs. yellow... eh, Cairo!), traffic is human compatible, public transportation is great. And it's different because of... the language! as I don't speak or understand German, at all, I feel like an alien sometimes Remembering the names of streets and stations is a challenge by itself.

So far everything is going smoothly, still looking for an apartment though, as my current shared apartment is the best I could arrange by email from Cairo, which was a miracle by Swiss market standards!

My family is not here yet, they will join in July hopefully. It’ll be so nice to find some company of English/Arabic speaking expat families in Zug

Cheers,
Mohamed.

Thank you. A "contrast" is underestimating the situation I say parallel worlds
