On the day of the U.S presidential elections, American readers of this site might be interested to know that World Radio Switzerland will be broadcasting coverage of the elections on Wednesday 7th November from 02:00 a.m. There have been many programmes on WRS throughout the past seven days which have covered issues concerning Americans living in Switzerland.
One of these programmes (called The Connectors), discussed American patriotism from afar, taxation, banking and the Foreign Accounting Tax Compliance Act (FACTA). If you are interested in hearing this programme again, just click on this link here.
On a lighter note, Living in Nyon came across this busker yesterday playing guitar in the underpass under Nyon railway station. Brian from Charleston-South Carolina, is touring the world whilst playing flamenco to passers by. He was previously in Spain, but he moved on to Switzerland as he says “not only are the people generous and friendly here, but as this country is in a better economic shape, I can earn more money (particularly in Geneva and Nyon) I can even “save a little!”
Brian also predicted that the Barack Obama would win the U:S presidential elections. This time tomorrow, we should know the answer and if Brian the Busker is right!
