Switzerland is different from the EU
(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.
