We had to get new pictures for the girls to renew our Swiss residence permits yesterday. After many stops and some finagling in the picture booth at our train station, this is what I got.
They look so pissed... so Swiss.
This is a country where most of the people think that smiling is a sign of a weak mind.
But then again, there's this. Brian lost his keys while out for a run a couple of weeks ago. He searched and searched and came up with nothing. This morning, he checked in at the police office. Someone had turned them in.
So the Swiss will not smile at you but they will respect your things. And we are so thankful for that!
