Bob’s Blog

Hello, and welcome to the first edition of Bob’s Blog on the newly-designed Switzerland In Sound website.

If you’re familiar with “Letter From Switzerland”, which appeared monthly on the old SIS, then the re-named “Bob’s Blog” will be an easy transition for you. But if you’re new here, let me explain that this is the place where I offer very personal opinions and observations about Switzerland and Swiss life.

This is a beautiful country and we want to talk about that “picture postcard” aspect of Switzerland. But we are not propagandists; Switzerland has its blemishes and idiosyncrasies, and some of them can be downright irritating. I will comment on both sides of Switzerland here, and will not shy away from being critical and opinionated if it seems necessary.

“Everything is getting better”. In my experience, this popular Swiss saying is sometimes not true. On the contrary. In some cases my answer is: “No, things are just getting more complicated and expensive”.
