It is 8am in Zurich and I am about to have beer for breakfast, poured by a fellow Washingtonian.
Ingrid is a wonderful Swiss-American view. Especially when she does not blink at my breakfast choice.
In fact, one of the reasons she left the States was our movement towards the nanny state. She prefers the Swiss neutrality on most things.
As the guy next to me lights up, the joy of Zurich starts to fade. We might not be the land of absolute freedom, but I do miss Smoke Free DC.
