Just arrived in Zurich this week.
Bollywood has made Switzerland a famous and most desirable place. I guess like Finland, this country has also also given due credit to the Indian film industry. The number of tourists from India are increasing every year. as a teenager, I always wanted to come to Switzerland and have fun in the Alps.
Its amazing, Swiss people have all the right to be proud of themselves and the achievements. To put a vast network of trains, trams and buses must have need great amount of research and planning on an ongoing basis.The buses, trams and trains are on time. Go to a website or send SMS to a number and plan your trip, to the minute. You are guarunteed to reach anywhere in time, that too using public transport.
For some one, from a city of Pune, of a country where the economy is growing at the rate of approx 8%, its somekind of 'Culture Shock'.
I have been to UK and there too the public transport was excellent, however in Zurich, its in a class of its own. In my city, Pune, it took 4 years to build a flyover of 2Kms -4 Kms.
Do we have civil engineers in the decision making circles?
I will keep writing about Switzerland ans experiences. Need to have experience first though!
