First week in Zürich

This month I have made a big change in my life, I switched jobs and I moved to Zürich.

The Swiss are way more rigurous and strict then the Romanian people. Within 14 days of arriving in Switzer­land you have to register yourself at Kreisburo (if you live in Zürich) or at the Gemeind (in other places). You have three months to choose a health insurer or it will be chosen for you.

You have to buy special trash bags, that are quite expensive (something like 20 CHF for a pack of 10), because they include the recycling tax in them. So if you do recycling, then you continue.
