My new visa

Well, it finally arrived and I an official resident! This is what it looks like and it allows me to stay and work legally.

This is not easy to get as so called "Dritt-länder". This literally means 3rd Worlder. I never thought of myself like that but the Swiss see themselves as level 1 and any EU citizens at level 2 and everyone else is level 3. Oh, well it means we can start our life here and we are looking forward to the day when we are all here.

Introduction to Namics

Well, I am here in the town of St. Gallen in east of Zürich. My company namics is giving us the full in brief on how the company works.

Nice town with a lot of history which is great for me since I love that subject so much. We had a personal tour of the StiftsBibliotek, church library. It is an amazing place with documents dating all the way back to the year 400 AD! It was amazing to see a piece of paper written in that year in Rome. It reminded me that I need to learn latin so many amazing things and you could not read them!!!
