Swiss Honesty

Sometimes, prejudices can turn out to be true - and sometimes you are darn glad they did. A couple of weeks ago I lost my wallet. I didn't even notice until the receptionist of the EPFL called me and told me somebody had handed it in. Then I proceeded to explore my vocabulary of swear words in English and French, because I had about 400 CHF inside, and was sure they were gone. Au contraire! My heroine, Mademoiselle L. (who is from Bern) had found my wallet and handed it in without even taking a centime.

All hail Mme. L!
