From the Back Cover The entertaining diary of an Englishman living in Switzerland started as notes to remind him what to write to his family in England. Cultural values of the Swiss and the British have never been compared with such wit and insight, revealing the pleasures and pitfalls of cross-cultural adaptation. He discovers the many different ways the world is viewed in Switzerland, attitudes about having a good time, getting a job, queuing and paying meticulous attention to detail. He is astonished and amused at what the Swiss worry about -almost everything, things that most British people do not even notice. He is also shocked at what the Swiss do not worry about - like real candles on Christmas trees and lifts with no inner doors. Like a true tourist, he asks nave questions and is content with nave answers. He discovers the new and the novel, wakes up each day to a fresh adventure with surprises at every turn. A diary of unconventional spectacles.
