    1200 would give you after everything about 8-9 grand net I would have thought. A daily rate of 800-900 however is more likely and netting about 6 grand.

    So not worth it other than "having an experience" in Switzerland.

    Perhaps not down south, but up here in the civilised part of Switzerland, there's a 24 hour emergency beer service.
    Basel's cool <'cos you can shop in Germany by tram>, Zurich is mammon, Geneva's more of a french civil service feel, - wouldn't be for me, but it IS very expensive, and social insurance contributions can far outweigh tax, depending on your residential canton.
    Still a pretty boring country though.

    Boring? Depends on what floats your boat. I'm going to the Basel Jazz Festival tomorrow.

    Nice.

    it's significantly cheaper to stay in Annemasse - something of a shanty town over the border in France. I stayed in an apartment hotel thing over there. I negotiated a long term let on it, meaning I didn't have to keep dragging all my stuff in and out each week.
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!
