Yay, Daniel’s Aufenthaltsbewilligung (Permit B) arrived. Just in time for the three month anniversary of our arrival in Switzerland. It is valid until May 2009 and then we would have to reapply. I hope it would be easier second time around. (Actually, the boys and I could stay forever being Swiss citizens and send Daniel back to NZ alone! – no, not really). We are excited that it finally arrived.
Our latest big decision is whether to get ourselves into an apartment or not. I mean, my wonderful aunty has kindly allowed us to stay three months in her big house, and we could stay longer. But it would be cool to have our own proper Wohnung. We have looked at a number of apartments in multi-storey buildings in Aarau and the surrounding area. You don’t really get apartment blocks in the suburbs in NZ so quite something cool for us, though probably a bit budget and boring for the Swiss. Toby thinks all the apartments are hotels, with lifts and buttons and stairs etc. I think the boys would love it. Actually there aren’t that many available apartments around and a couple of the ones we were keen on have already been snapped up. Maybe it will be tricky with Dan not being a Swiss too, dunno. We’ll see and we’ll keep you posted!
