Switzerland is different from the EU

by Naoto
(Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan)

Switzerland is different from other European countries. It doesn't have any allies, so it was independent during WWII and is not a member of the EU. Switzerland has strong military power, and that's why it can be independent. Most Swiss men go into the reserves or militia, and most houses have a submachine gun and shelter from nuclear bombs.

It is interesting for me that it has four official languages: German, Italian, French, & Romansh. It is a mystery how to communicate with people speaking other languages. All Swiss people can speak four languages?

My image of Lugano is the Lugano Jazz Festival. A lot of bands, sometimes not only jazz bands, play music in the festival.
