i thought european life was supposed to be pretty laid back, pretty chill — but that’s not the impression i get from the swiss. but then again the swiss just seem like pretty anal people. don’t get me wrong, i love the atmosphere here, but there are just so many rules! you have to throw your trash away in certain black bags in certain dumpster-type places, you have to cross the street on the yellow crosswalk, aaaaand there are quiet hours (10 p.m. to 7 or 9 a.m… not sure).. i guess these rules are so everyone can live a bit more comfortably, but honestly now, we’re in europe. life is comfortable without all the weird laws. oh and i can’t forget the worst thing EVER… everywhere closes around 6 p.m. everyday with the exception of gas stations and on Thursdays places are open til about 9 p.m. And don’t even think about going shopping on a Sunday because nowhere is open! it’s insane. very picky people, these swiss are…
