I don't seems to see many golf courses (haven't seen any actually) in Switzerland. Is there enough room here to even have any, and 2. can you just drop your line into a river or lake and fish, or do you need a permit? Hope someone can tell me,judy

Hi all, What does the law say in Switzerland about riding your bike and wearing a helmet? I guess (or hope) it's mandatory? thanks for your help.

As I'm not much of an indoor person, I would like to start doing my exercise on the various Vita Parcours. I guess going there and use it is for free (sorry, maybe a bit a silly question...)? Do exsist some kind of groups which meet and do the loop together?

Do Swiss children play baseball? (or adults for that matter) I can't recall ever seeing a baseball diamond. Thanks for a reply, Lea

Watching the Olympics makes me homesick for Canada, I love to see that Maple Leaf. Do any of you also feel that way. It makes me want to be around English speaking people more than usual. Are there andy expats meetings going on with people wanting to talk about sports? (not just guys.) Barb

Just wanted to warn people who don't know about the strikes and flight cancellations all over Europe because of Lufthansa striking yesterday, and in France there are all sorts of problems. I wanted to fly to Nice yesterday, and now have to wait until tonight! What a pain. Check your flight status before heading out to the airport!Hans
