figure I should actually introduce myself

Since I've gotten helpful answers to a couple of questions already, I figure I should introduce myself.

I'm Tom, and (knock on wood) my partner and I are moving to Lugano from the US as soon as our visas come through - I'll be working as a systems administrator at a research center, he isn't sure what he's going to be doing yet - possibly attending school.

We're both really excited about the whole thing, though we're trying to temper that with some realism about the difficulties of moving to a new country - we have friends who have moved both into and out of the US, and have gotten a lot of advice from them.

We're hoping to learn Italian as soon as possible, and I'll want to learn German for work as well (though my employer operates in English, I'll be working with a lot of German-speakers.)

Anyway, nice to meet everyone.

Re: figure I should actually introduce myself

you'll be ok with a smattering of German and Italian in Lugano. Italian will help grease the locals though - better prices and treatment. In fact, make sure they know you are not from Zurich and you'll be grand!!

And you'll be exposed to the best weather in the country
