Have you ever tried swiss german? Für lüüt wo's nöd kenned isch's ächt komisch. For people who don't know it it's incredibly strange
Even the germans don't understand us, but it's a kind of german too. But we understand them.
So tell me something about Schwizerland? How beautiful is it really? Because I imagine it's amazing there...
Well, it's not very amazing for me cause I live there, but I'll give my best.
It's basically flat in the middle and you start to get mountains towards the South and South-East. Everything's basically quite small here (they call Zurich, our largest city the biggest village
), but the land's very, very closely populated, especially in the flat part, where I live. You don't have any wildlife around here and where there are no houses, there are either small forests or farmland. You only get really wild wildlife in the alpes, in the stony regions, where no one is able to build anything.
Up there you get beautiful little mountain villages, mostly built on steep mountain slopes, but there are also the vallies, where most of the people who live in the mountain regions are. We have some truly beutiful places around here, but the mountains can get really magical, especially in the evenings when the sun goes down. It is something special, even if you've seen it as many times as me. The mountains take on amazing colours, along with the sky and you see how the vallies and the flat land slowly get darker and darker and up on a hill or mountain you're still in the sun... And sometimes you get one or the other glittering waterfall
I feel summer is the most magical and beautiful season of the year in Switzerland (especially the alpes), but that's only my opinion.
What else can I say... North and middle are generally the Swiss German parts, in the South they mostly speak italian or french, west's french and in the east, in a very, very small part, they speak romanic.
Oh, and it's amazing to fly over the mountains with the plane. Well, also driving through the alpes with a car or train is very nice. You can choose.
If we don't have necesseraly have to go through tunnels, we always take the pass, because it's a lot more fun
Now tell me something about Holland. I'm curious. I'm sure you have beautiful things over there too.
