Pretty new to Lugano!

Hello everybody!

My name is Mihnea, I'm from Romania and have been working at USI as a Ph.D. student in Informatics since September.

I've been a forum lurker for quite some time until mustering the courage to subscribe and write my first post.

I'd like to get acquainted with the English-speaking crowd (my Italian being very poor ) and go out for a drink or other social activities with people in a similar condition to mine.

All the very best,
Mihnea

Hej Mihnea
I was in Lugano on friday,came down from Zurich. Looks like a beautiful place. You pick up Italian easy, it is close to romanian. One half your language is Latin same a as Italian.
I made some Romanian friends in London, lost touch. Picked up a few words, can't write it.......
All the best, Charlie

Re: Pretty new to Lugano!

Hey hey...welcome to The South! :-)

My acquired nephew's fiancée is Romanian (Rumanian?)...nice folks, but live in Locarno (which agreedly could be a hassle).

She majored in slavic languages (if I remember correctly) so I'm pretty sure you'd have *plenty* to talk about

If you want to hook up just PM me.

Ciao, a presto!

Paul

Hi Mihnea,
it is quite possible that you come across my husband - postdoc at USI Informatics, but I bet all he know romanian (from our visit in your home country) is "multumesc" We can't speak Italian as well, but everybody says it is easy to learn.
Unfortunately we have a baby, who doesn't support us in ideas like "going out for a drink", but if you would like, we can make up something else

Welcome to Lugano! Today it is 8 C. with brilliant sunshine. Could there be a better place to live and study?

Re: Pretty new to Lugano!

Hi,

I will soon be moving to Lugano to work at IDSIA.

How are you settling in? Do you have any tips for a newbie?

Simon

Re: Pretty new to Lugano!

We've got other members working in that hi-tech sector (i.e. same buildings) as well.

Settling in really depends on what you are "too dependent" on....

Here in Ticino we have shopping malls, public transportation, plenty of nature, lakes, good food.

Traffic isn't too traumatic, and CH is on average more expensive than the USA...
