But the water is FREEZING - and where it's warm, full of sharks.

Eish man, you guys almost stumbled against us...

Must admit (I am not a Sharks supporter, by an means, so don't quote me!) that the sharks are looking pretty good this season. I reckon the Bulls are going struggle.

Although I don't understand how the Bulls aren't running away with it though (considering the pace you guys have on the wings!).

Hi

I'm also a South African living permanently in Switzerland, have been here 6 years now!
It would be great to meet some other South Africans.

Wish you all the best!

Hi Edwin,

Welcome to the forum! We've been here almost 2 years now. Good to "meet" another Saffa!

Re: hi there! anyone else from south africa?

Hello everyone. I'm yet another of the seemingly fairly large gang of Saffers living in Zurich, as of January this year. Just spotted this thread.

Wanted to ask if anyone would potentially be keen in meeting up for a drink one evening after work, perhaps next week? Would be happy to organise something, but thought I'd gauge interest first... (Good venue recommendations also welcome.)

Welcome! I'm not aware of any get togethers specifically for S Africans, however, ef has a social calendar that you could check out. You'll more than likely find a few of us lurking around at one event or another.

Re: hi there! anyone else from south africa?

I am not from SA (originally Zim) but I went to uni (Rhodes) and worked there for a few years before I came here, so its pretty much home for me (the good old Eastern Cape)

What is so sad and hectic is that the winters along that coast are so much better than the summers here. But lets be honest, the 1st world definitely has its advantages.

Re: hi there! anyone else from south africa?

Been here in Gstaad, Switzerland for just over a year. Really miss South Africa but the money here is so good. Done things which were never possible for us before in S.A. The location of CH in Europe has resulted in us driving to the London, Venice, Paris and we are going to Munich for the October beerfest. Then were off to SA for three weeks-but we will not be driving there.
We love SA food (braai), people, rugby etc. Were also interested in SA clubs, get togethers etc. Can anyone advice or give us info please.

Re: hi there! anyone else from south africa?

Hi Mienke,

We are also on our way and arriving Jan 2011, somewhere in Aargau. Sal jou graag ontmoet! Don;t stress too much, I'm half-Swiss, half-South African, and there is a lot of similarities between Afrikaners and Swiss. Both can be crusty, until you get to know them. Persisting with Scheizer Deutsch, doesnt matter if you get every tense wrong, will make them open up to you!

Re: hi there! anyone else from south africa?

If there is rugby on then you'll find a kak load of Saffas at the Shamrock pub in Wollishofen (Zurich) and most weekends, if the weather is good, you can catch us braaing at the lake by Rüschlikon. Feel free to stop by!
