Woman, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend... Just when I thought life could not get any better I heard a knock on my door, it was Cancer.
It changed everything but not for the worse. I choose Life and Hope .
BACK OFF CANCER is what I say!

3 of 8

8 Things that I miss about the USA:

1. Duh! My friends... you know who you are ... it doesn't get easier.. just more manageable.

2. Food: And I do not mean American food ( sorry) but all the yummy foods that you could get in NYC. Dim Sum for breakfast, Thai for Lunch, Indian for dinner, with a few pretzels in between and all for (usually) little money

3. Food (part 2) : being able to shop the endless grocery stores , in particular our Korean Market , TJ, etc

3. Bargain Shopping: ( The Swiss DO NOT get the concept of " a good bargain") .. people here think that 10% off Full price is a deal... I KNOW BETTER

4. Movies: endless choices, everywhere.. and YOU DO NOT NEED TO BUY TKTS IN ADVANCE

5. Chinatown: I am still looking but I think Zurich might be the only city in the WORLD that has NO Chinatown

6. A USD 10 manicure and an even better USD 20 for a pedicure ( here you must add a zero to these prices)

7. How close I felt to Brazil.. I think it was both the 1 hour only time difference and the (compared to here) cheap tickets. .I always felt I was so close...

8. Did I say my friends?????

big kiss and Happy VDAY

I love those pretzels on the street in NYC. Plus the Hot Dogs. I didn't stop for one unless they had relish.
