Not a hard decision you might think? I got an email today from one of my expat friends. There are 3 of us (plus our lads - but of course it's the girls who always organise everything!) and we meet every month or two, for drinks or food. I guess all 3 couples are pretty much the same age - early to mid thirties - and none of us have kids. Plus we're all expats here - english, irish, south african, american. We're at the stage that we've all met up several times, and the relationships between us all are slowly developing.
The decision to meet on Friday isn't really a difficult one at all, because I know we'll have a great time, but the first time we all met up, it was a conscious decision. There's a yahoo group for expats in Zurich, and it's useful 10% of the time for handy hints, but the other 90% of the time it tends to be whinging expats complaining about everything! I digress. Anyway, one of the couples organised a Tram Pub Crawl on Tram Line 7. I remember that A and I really discussed whether we should go and meet other expats, but in the end it was a good decision! Everyone met up, and we jumped on and off trams in our search for drinks! It was a great evening and we met these two other couples. So, a good decision then, and hopefully another good night coming up on Friday!
