I started work in my new office this week. My coworkers got me lots of interesting Swiss stuff to help me get acclimated. Two of the most interesting were Aromat, a flavored salt with MSG, and Bärli-Biber, a spiced cake with marzipan filling.
This week also had a holiday, Ascension Day, on Thursday. Apparently a lot of folks take off the following Friday. There were lots of church bells, but I was home sick with a cold, so I didn't explore to see if folks went out or not.
On learning to be an adult again, I had to re-learn how insurance and retirement works. It's just as mind-numbing as in the US, but just different enough that I had to pay attention.
Saturday we went for a long walk (8.5 km - long by my standards). We explored some of Kreis 2 and saw some pretty parks.
I also cooked a little more, this time without recipes. I made a Pittsburgh salad (lettuce, cucumber, carrots, hard boiled egg, ranch dressing, with fries on top). I also made a more normal chicken, potato, and asparagus dinner. Today, we have sausages and a Rösti kit to make for lunch.
