My First Few Impressions of Life Here in Lausanne

  • Being pregnant in cold weather is tough because your body is using triple the energy to carry yourself, your baby, and fight the coldness. So I am getting very tired easily here and I sleep earlier than usual heheh.
  • Honesty is key. No one really checks your bus and train tickets. You buy the pass, hop on and hop off on your own. There's not even a gate or machine where you need to go through or insert a ticket. No one will actually ask for your ticket. It's about self-responsibility and self-accountability. You pay for a ticket because you know it's the right thing to do.
  • I haven't seen any billboard ads here on the roads and it's so nice! All you see is the sky and pretty buildings and your eyes get to relax without getting fed with so much commercial info.
  • I like the fact that everyone brings their own shopping bags here, otherwise they charge you 2 CHF per bag (which is a lot).
  • Shopping for fruits and veggies in the supermarket here is fun because you get to weigh them by yourself and just press a photo of what you are buying on the screen and have your label sticker printed automatically. I love this because I've always wanted to be a cashier! :D
  • That's all for now!
