Subject: ATM Beware of Switzerland
Hi Ziners, I have never had a bit of trouble using my ATM cards in Europe, except in Switzerland, where they were consistently rejected. Yes, I followed all the rules,etc. Ended by buying CHF at a horrid rate from a money changer using my AMEX card. On the return trip I will buy Swiss francs in Italy, just enough for my overnight in Zurich...and a taxi to the airport. On the whole, I'm having a wonderful vacation now in Southern Italy. Getting quite suntanned.

And fat! Almost time to go home again. Gorley from SF now in Lecce in Puglia....
