Apart from my earlier posted biggest wish/expectation for 2021, there's a teeny tiny other one:

I'd like to meet people where I live now......2.5 yrs here and starting to feel kinda lonely. Funny really, I feel like some Expats must feel at times.

I also dearly miss to have a good chinwag in English.
Post a message in the Migros or Coop. You might be surprised.

I cycle to Belp all the time ... when the weather and things are better, I would be happy to meet!

Believe me, I practised everything myself (since I live here), what I preach/ed to Expats in the past 2 decades.... to no avail.

One can say what one wants about Biel, but the ppl were much more sociable there and not as clique-y and looking down their noses, as ppl are here

I lived in several places in CH, but never was it as tricky to build up aquaintances as it is here. I have a much better understanding for Expats that say the Swiss are hard nosed & arrogant towards them.

I will keep on trying!

Was going to say the same, I walk swim on along the Aare between Belp and Bern regularly.
