Hi there!

I'm from Italy and I'll be moving to Switzerland (Zug/Baar area) soon.
Hope to find good hints and friends around here

Thanks!

Nope it doesn't. We know you'd love the Ticino to be a walled off country of itself, Tom

Ciao, freak. I see you don't get deterred easily. You will last on EF.
Have a good start in Switzerland.

Wrong. Ciao zamma! (Auf wiedersehen zusammen). It's the same as "Sorry". Simple, well known foreign words get adopted.
