I am going to Geneva! My permit application has not yet finished making the rounds of both Kantons as well as the Federal offices (3 months and counting), but I am meeting with the CEO today to talk about short and long term objectives. Very exciting! I also have a work email account. So I got up and got dressed like a grownup and am currently traversing the length of the country for the meeting.
I am going to be spending a lot of time on trains. A lot. And I realized I am going to be sitting by a lot of weird people on trains. So welcome to the first post of “the train riding population of swissland”. Right now I was joined by a traditional Swiss sight; three 20something men in officer uniforms heading off to do some army stuff. Sans automatic weapons, and as it is morning, sans obligatory beer. In keeping with the seriousness of their uniforms they are fixing their hair in their phones, playing video games, and napping!
