Totally OT I suppose, but I'm off on hols to Switzerland on Wednesday. Weather forecast is distinctly chilly for most of the week, but escaping the horrendous shambles in the UK will be so refreshing.
Are you planning to ask for asylum?
I doubt I could afford it with £1 = CHF1.14 when I came away.

Yesterday's example of amusing Swiss prices. Visited a lakeside restaurant - always going to be pricy. Special of the Day - Fish and Chips. CHF 35 = £30.70. I just smile and walk on.
Have to say that is not typical. Best value places are self-service places in larger supermarkets and station buffets. Good quality and generous portions at much more reasonable prices. And as I'm on HB in a hotel with excellent food - good buffet breakfast and 4-course evening meal, i don't want much at lunchtime. Sarnie and banana sort of thing.
JTA. Weather cold and damp for last 4 ddays.
