I searched everywhere for a definition of what "being a local" mean.. Wikipedia, Google., etc.. and could not find any. We all know that feeling when we move to a new neighborhood, new town, or new country and you DO NOT feel like a local... and I realize is a feeling that I missed a lot.. I liked "running into people" , knowing peoples names, etc.
My sister is visiting ( pics will follow soon ) . Yesterday I was waiting for her at Paradeplatz and then I saw from across the street my friend (new) Joelle and her cute son Max, and I screamed for her and she came over to meet Chiara . It felt so good to "bump into people" that I knew in the middle of Zurich. Then we felt like Sushi and went to this yummy place near Stadelhofen and as we walked in, the cute server, Ali, said : Hi Francesca!!!
At that moment, I felt like a local .... or how is Local in Swiss German?????
