My reasons for asking ex-pats:
1. You are smart, resourceful people who, on varying levels, empathize with a young woman leaving the country of her birth.
2. You have a realistic view of Switzerland, deeper than my readers' are expected to have but not as pedantic as a scholar's. I want to write a believable story, not a textbook, so if it passes muster with you, it should be fine.
3. I was an ex-pat for many years and appreciate the spirit of the community.
4. we speak english and you don't speak german, french, italian or any other language for that matter.

interested to know just what profile your average reader would have?

Not everyone on here is an ex-pat. Plenty of restless natives:

1. Not all of us are female.
2. You'd be surprised.
3. And yet the penny still hasn't dropped...

Re: Affenpincher dogs

1. All of us have moms and many of us have sisters and nieces.
2. If I say something impossibly stupid like Zurich is south of Ticino, someone is bound to pick it up.
3. But has the franc dropped?

I'm no economist but the CHF is always pretty stable, no? I mean, banking is a massive deal in CH and all the really wealthy international folk have a Swiss bank account don't they.... So, no. I think it's going to hold. I wouldn't worry.

You can't float from Geneva to Montreux!!

If you were going to float anywhere you'd end up near Marseilles!!
