San Francisco Bay Area to Zurich = culture shock
I've been here for a while and after 3 months, lurking and learning. I still can't say I've gotten used to the Swiss way of making friends. In the US, it's kind of a cliche that in elevators people are quiet and unwilling to talk, in Switzerland, a bus or tram seems to be a giant elevator of sorts.
Anyway, having said that, I'm start to find some non-typical Swiss people and now looking to join a sattelite apartment in Oerlikon that promises to be a bit more social. Still, if anyone's more of an outgoing type here in Zurich and wants to meet up or have any tips on places with a more underground music/art scene or where the crowds are generally warmer, I'd certainly appreciate it.
