Is Zurich the capital city of Switzerland?

You might think that Zurich is the capital city of Switzerland. The answer is a big NO!

I cannot blame you for thinking that way. Zurich is in fact the largest city of Switzerland and the cultural and commercial capital of the country. 

I have visited Switzerland (Interlaken, Bern, and Lucerne) a few years ago, but I didn't get the chance to see Zurich on that trip. Since Munich is three hours away from Zurich, and it was my birthday, I had the perfect excuses to travel to the city and eat Cheese Fondue. Yes, I  only wanted to eat Cheese Fondue on my birthday (and I got it)!

The Philippines through Hazel Eyes

I'm curious to know what people from other countries think about the Philippines. When strangers talk me, they couldn't guess that I'm a Filipina. I don't know why (with my brown skin, vertically-challenged physique, and my Asian nose) most of them think that I'm from the US. Hah! It's crazy because when I was complaining about doing the mandatory ski course video, one English guy said to me, "Don't you Americans like to take videos?"

I was puzzled. I am certainly not American, and I seldom take videos of me.
