Smile please..

I have been to Zurich many times and it is such a coincidence that 35 years back my husband was working in Annecy (France) and when we were there, then also we visited Zurich.And that time we saw museums and tourist places. But in all my other trips I enjoy walking in the old town or banhoffstrasse and just roaming around....I am really surprised that nothing changes here, everything remains the same, except that may be population has increased that also not so much as compared to other places.

Here, wherever construction is going on for roads or anything, everybody cribs that they do all this to create employment, they dont need it, road was already good enough.

One thing I really like here and would like to emulate is that everybody works with a smile, meets with a smile..nobody seems to be grumpy...though one of the biggest reason is they have enough money for everything, but still its a habit also...smile spreads energy.

Here in Silcity there is a restaurant..Vapiano,there they give you a card and with that you order and take everything available and while going you can pay....totally honour system, we also need to bring that honesty in our life.

Every time I came in summer, so I was very curious to see the winter here. But this time when god gave me the chance, I feel summer is better..because for me its always very cold outside and no charm in walking around. And the day is so short here that by 5PM it becomes dark.And I have realised that every place has its charm till you havent seen it..after that everything is same...but your home never looses its charm.You always want to come back

People in many countries make eye contact, smile and wish each other, even when they are total strangers. This is something we Indians can emulate.
