Well, if you don't have a suitcase full of $100 bills, opening a bank
account in Switzerland is surprisingly difficult, especially if you are
moving here from the U.S. If immigration then decides to request from you
documents they already have, thus delaying your residence permit by a few
more weeks, the bank ends up returning your first salary, just about the
same time you have to pay a 3 month rental deposit for a small and
ridiculously expensive apartment. Everything is slowly falling into place,
but it has been an interesting ride.

The trains and trams do seem to run remarkably on time, but I don't think
Eva would be too happy about me setting out to test how good lovers the
Swiss are...
