Maybe a few days late, but work sent me to Zurich, Switzerland last week until the end of August to visit and reorganize the datacenters we have there. Its the first time I’ve been to Europe, and like it so far. The 6h time difference took a bit to get used to, but I’ve explored the city a bit and gotten over jetlag. Hopefully since I’m closer to UTC time, I won’t miss the Ubuntu Regional Board approval meeting next week like I did last time :P. I’m impressed by all the trains, trams, and busses in the city, and the overall orderliness of the city, considering how big it is. Its also pretty expensive (eg, $15 for a big mac), but the beer is better and the area is beautiful, so give and take, I suppose. My US phone has also been turned off for the summer.
I’m living in an apartment in Oerlikon with some coworkers during this time. Its just a short train ride from the city, so if you’re in the area, I’m always willing to go out for a drink, so drop me a line if you’re interested. They also don’t seem to have Mountain Dew or Taco Bell around here, so if you know where I can find either, pointers would be appreciated. 😀
