Zurich: No longer top of the "city with the best work/life balance" scale

Apparently its now second to Dubai. Dubai's Religious day brunches and after-brunch celebrations have it pipped:

At least as far as I am concerned!

Very good - but I am tempted to move it to Jokes. Once everyone's turned up and read the Mail

They do have beaches here to, you know. Post-Iroquais, perhaps?

Oh go on, let it run...

I mean, really, surely any city that holds an "ALL YOU CAN DRINK BRUNCH" on a regular basis has got to be NUMBER 1!

Besides, I need all the THANKS I can get after my supermarket rantings..

Gave you a thanks, there now

Nah, you can have sex in front of 4 local lechers and noone is going to call the police here in Zurich. They'll even offer applause if the performance is

"I don't care what people do on the beach, as long as they don't do it in the streets and scare the camels."

Zurich? Still #1!

Will you call police if , just if you have the kids with you? Or when you are with your own kids? (Sorry for assumptions). And I think it would be too bad samples or educations for kids or teenager. It doesn't matter if they perform good or not.

Dubai,

Did they forget to factor in the temperature, sand storms, Air and water quality, or did they just take a nice bag of money to up the ratings.
Lets not forget that it's ultra conservative where having a little fun might land you on the chopping block, and if you are a women then forget it. Sorry but thats not quality of life for me.

Even better... Theres several 5 star hotels in India who do this along with food.... when I last was in India... 10 dollars all you can drink and eat... But they probably closed it by now after the night we went out...
