Cobbling Tales Together

So, it’s been over 4 months in Switzerland now. I was mentioning today to a co-worker that things begin to feel … well … familiar. What was remarkable is now recognizable and expected – the good and the irritating. There are still some things, like stone walkways, the mountains, the beautiful old buildings and quaint alleyways that just don’t seem to get old. They are old, and will always be novel – snapshots of another time.

We’re living the everyday – every day. From challenges at school, grocery shopping, laundry, looking forward to weekends, taking the dog out and doing dishes to worshiping with friends on Sunday morning, evenings in our apartment and the winter snow and rain.

Our everday isn’t your every day. But, then, whose is?

So, I’ll pose a simple question with, hopefully, many answers. What would you like to know?

Perhaps your curious about billboards, advertisements, local radio or the drunk guy who always seems to get on the same bus as Aaron at night at the Baar Bahnhof – friendly guy, by the way. Or, maybe you wonder if the local beers are any good. Maybe your just curious what types of milk are available at the grocery store or what fashion is in at the grocery store.

Challenge us. We’ll report back.

Go for it. Be creative in your requests 🙂

Meanwhile, we’ll keep our eyes open and our cameras ready.

    What is the price of a “tall” beer in USD?

      I’ll have to get back to you on that one. I don’t drink beer much, but if I need to do some research … well … then I just might.

    How far is the train station from your house? I’m just curious how long it will take Roger and I to get to your house after we get to Zurich. 🙂

      Looking forward to your time with us!

      It is about a 1/2 hour train ride – allowing you to see some of the countryside and along the shoreline of Lake Zug on your way.

      You’ll pick up the train in the building directly across from the International Arrivals (also called Arrivals 2). You will want to catch the train to Zug via Thalwil. You’ll make a transfer in Thalwil. There is an information counter in the Bahnhof at the Zürich Airport. Plenty of people available to help, but we’ll likely meet you at the train station, so no worries 🙂 Just let us know your flight number. We should Skype soon to get an idea of where you would like to go while with us.
