busy busy

I have to say, I've been terrible about updating this blog, but I really enjoy reading and commenting on other Swiss Expat Blogs.
I recently went on a tour of the Zürich Google office organized by the Swiss Expat bloggers group. Thanks Ellen for organizing that! It was a blast and really made me wish I had taken a few more programming courses in college so that I could work there. ;-)

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind and it's still going. We had our quarterly busy time at work so I worked through most of Easter weekend. Luckily we got the day off on Sunday and I was able to enjoy a wonderful brunch at Hiltl with my friend Mimi and a nice Easter dinner with Matthias' family in St. Gallen.

Matthias left for China this afternoon. :-(
He's going to be in Shangai until the beginning of August working at the Swiss Pavilion for the World Expo. I can't wait to go visit in June and have my first trip to Asia (!!), but I miss him tons already.

Tomorrow morning I'm going with Christina to Davos. We're going to stay Saturday night and try to get one last ski weekend in.
Monday I leave for Chicago! I'll be there for a jam-packed 6 days. Tuesday I'll be visiting my old office and meeting friends and colleagues for drinks and Wednesday and Thursday I'll be visiting Jonanne and Travis (friends from Drake) in Cedar Rapids and Iowa City and Saturday I'll be in Chicago watching my cousin Kalya in Animal Farm at the Looking Glass theater and visiting with the family over an early dinner at Bistro 110. After that I'll be shopping on Michigan Ave. and meeting a few friends for drinks in the city. I'm also fitting in a mani-pedi and a haircut and lots more shopping. It's going to be crazy, but I can't wait!


  1. Have fun in Chicago. Eat some deep dish for me.

  2. Great that you enjoyed the Google tour. I have fond memories of the first time we did that! ;)
