Polite, yes; friendly, no!


That was my experience as well. I dated a German-speaking lass and I went to visit her and her family in Zurich. I was not invited to stay with them so I put up for the week at a well-run small hotel. The owners were a tad too formal and polite. Her parents looked on me as a sort of social misfit which is fair comment as I had long hair, rode a BMW bike and it was the decade of the Baader/Meinhof gang after all. During the day, lass and me would ride off somewhere and drink excellent beer. The mountains in the south were spectacular. Yeah, a very pretty country for sure and from where I sat, it had one major fault, they don't play rugby. I never saw her again after that brief visit but she was a fine lass. If they'd have played rugby I might have married her. Smile | :)
