I'm looking forward to something fairly exciting: I'm going to be living in Zürich for three months, starting the end of August. I'm going to work in Google's Swiss office.
I'm really looking forward to it, both as a career opportunity and as a way to try living in Europe for a time. I've travelled a fair amount, even lived in Budapest for a month, but this feels like a significant thing. Should be fun.
I've been listening to Swiss German tapes and it's clear my high school Hochdeutsch didn't prepare me for living in Switzerland. I'm sure I can get by with just English, but it seems like much more fun to order a beer in the local language.
