Since nobody posted anything before, I thought I will because I am afraid I haven't enough time to page with people.
Last saturday, three NAOees (null, Mr. Crash and me) drove to far Italy - to be exactly Torino- to get to know IRL the other NAOees andromacha and violablu.
We've been welcomed very nice by andromachas family. Her mother cooked some italian specialities and we exchanged Swiss chocolates with wine, cheese, pasta and pesto.
We had a tour through the city with the two girls.
I am afraid my english is not very good, nor my italian, but I hope andromacha and violablu still enjoyed the day and will come to visit Switzerland and Liechtenstein soon, maybe with another NAOee, Hawkeye.
Thank you guys for the nice stay you made it for us! You're really cool!
Though I've been a bit sceptic before, now I think it's cool to meet other NAOees all over the planet ;)

Hey hey Tammy :) Glad you enjoy your staying. Surely Violablu and I will have to return the visit someday, and actually I can't wait. I have never been in the San Gallo part of the Switzerland. I have been to Lugano though :P At least there they speak Italian! ;)
Seriously, I am kinda excited about that. I am sure you know how relevant your part of the state is as far as history is concerned. In particular San Gallo was a very important abbey as far as old German documents are concerned. An important document is for example the "Our father of San Gallo" ahem.. I think it originally had a title both in Latin and old German, but I am not quite sure of the Old German title :P
In any case, all these words to say that I can't wait to return the visit, even though I am kinda worried that you guys will speak your weird language too much :P Violablu always asked me what the heck you guys were saying to each other, but more than understanding a few words, or some sentences which supposedly are the same in Deutsch and Schweizerdeutsch I couldn't tell her exactly the message you were conveying :P Hey, I understood quite well when you said to Bernie that you didn't want to drink the wine in his glass (when he was trying to switch glasses) :P That's probably the whole complete sentence I understood ;)
Well, anyway, next time we'll make it so that you guys can stay here longer. We just have to arrange things better and plan everything in the detail, so that maybe you can get to stay here more than one day (and the poor Bernie won't have to tire himself out for driving so many kilometers) and everything will be nicer and less stressing :)
Italy no longer accepts illegal immigrants. Mr. B sink their boats!!!!!!!
Actually I planned to write a post and garnish it with a few pics, but guess what, I didn't get around to it. Still, it was fun and everybody was incredibly nice. Thanks again for spending the day with us!
(In our defense I'd like to add that our funny Swiss language was the only way to counter your funny Torino dialect which probably not even an average Italian understands, let alone us uneducated Swiss people.)
I am sure you know how relevant your part of the state is as far as history is concerned.
Oh, if you want history, we can visit some really old buildings in SG, and Orchid and me also live next to Switzerland's smallest city (34 houses, most of them medieval).
all these words to say that I can't wait to return the visit,
Any time. Just call us beforehand to make sure we're at home. :-)
