I noticed a few more things which are quite different here in Lausanne.

First, Swiss frozen pizza only takes 5-7 minutes in the oven. This is great … if you know it. If not, bon appétit eating charcoal.

Second, it’s perfectly normal for cyclists in Switzerland to happily co-exist with cars on a 4-lane highway without any emergency lane. At first I thought I’d lost track of the cycle path somewhere, as I had the feeling I was on a ramp to an autobahn/highway (… and I was indeed). But no, sure enough, this was were I was supposed to go as a cyclist.
