FUDcon Zurich Day 0

Spot and I took a red eye Wednesday night from Boston via JFK to Zurich; we arrived in Zurich at right around noon on Thursday. I tried to send txt messages to folk; my UK pay-go Vodafone gets a signal from Swisscom but I can’t make or receive calls and text messages. 🙁 (Any UK pay-go folks have hints?)
We ate lunch at a place Sandro Mathys recommended called Adler’s Swiss Chuchi, where we enjoyed delicious Swiss fondue! By chance we met up with Bert Desmet and his housing host Melanie and enjoyed some chat and drinks with them.

Then we headed over to ETH Zurich, the site for both FUDcon Zurich and FrOSCamp 2010 Zurich. Jesse, Jared, and Adam helped set up the conference, and then we headed back to the hotel before Spot fell asleep. 🙂

Zurich is a very beautiful city, I’m looking forward to seeing more of it over the next few days!

    I always end up reading a different person's blog during my FWN reading, and apparently it's yours this week, so I thought I'd leave a comment. XD Anyway, Zurich looks awesome. You guys have fun and enjoy FUDCon!

  3. I study there! (though away on internship atm) Always fun to see my own uni on other people's blog posts. Check out Tibits for awesome vegetarian buffet 🙂
    P.S. No reason your UK sim shouldn't work – check you don't have to add some roaming option or something (I used an Orange one for a while without any trouble)
