Switzerland… life with the swiss germans

Switzerland is one of my favourite places.. main reason?  its a chocolate land!!! I have not experience eating a lof of chocolates in my life but here.. its our breakfast, snack and desert.  This is also where I had my first ski experience… terrible experience.. 🙂  Nahh… its fun but painful…

I have been to some places around and its really really nice especially being up there in the alps.. not skiing but still nice to see from above. 

The swiss germans as expected are efficient and very nice. Learned some few words like: Grüezi (hello), En guete (have a nice meal), Tschüss (Good bye), Schoggi (chocolate)

And this is just one of the languages – the other 3 are french, italian and few Romansh.
