A beautiful town
Max and Erica's organization is located at 7 Mazzinistrasse, Grenchen, Switzerland.
We fly to Zurich, and from there it's an hour by train to Grenchen Sud station.
Max met us). We walk from the front of the street to the Ron's Org.
Grenchen is a small town with a population of 17,000. At the foot of the Jura mountain range.
Low-rise buildings, all quiet and well maintained.
Private homes with gardens.
This is the center of the town.
Squares with sculptures.
And more sculptures.
This is the street we need (on its backside).
We go from the back of the street to the Ron's Org.
The Ron's Org building (left) fully belongs to its staff.
Ron's Org also owns a decent chunk of land on which the second part of the building will be built in the future (the design is ready).
Inexpensive accommodation and meals
We were helped to rent an apartment five minutes away. We paid 26 francs per day per person (double occupancy, about 1,800 Russian rubles per day).
We lived in this house on the ground floor.

We enter the apartment.
Showers and toilets.
Someone left free grapes on the porch to treat the neighbors.
We cooked our own food in our kitchen, and it was inexpensive. In general, food prices in Switzerland are on average twice as high as in Moscow. But when you choose goods at a discount and inexpensive, it turns out to be acceptable. You can see the prices in the supermarket by clicking the button below.
Vlad and Oksana have been preclears and students of Ron's Org Grenchen. Receiving auditing and training at Ron's Org Grenchen is an amazing pleasure. Scientology at its highest level of provision. And other guests were allowed to take Ron's Org Grenchen classes and experience this wonderful atmosphere!

Excursion with Max and Erica to the town of Solothurn
Max and Erica took us on an excursion to a temple set up in the mountain and to the town of Solothurn with its beautiful ancient architecture.
We crammed into a seven-seat passenger car, with Max at the wheel. It was cramped, but fun.
Somewhere we are led into a suspicious forest.
But the places are beautiful.

Wow, a beautiful gorge and some kind of church!
It turned out that there was a temple in the cave of the mountain.
The priest's cottage.
All sorts of expositions.
It's all in the grottoes.
This is a kind of altar inside the cave. The temple is active.
And here is the city of Solothurn itself.
We take a brisk look around.
It's very pretty.
On the bridge over the Aare River.
We sat down for lunch on the waterfront.
Asking questions about everything.
And - to walk around the city again!
What kind of kindergarden is this? Would you expect it from an OT 48?...
And Lada, too...
The fortress wall and the view of the Jura mountains.
Max as a tour guide.
There are a lot of old drinking fountains.
Это была замечательная прогулка!
In the evening we have tea at Max and Erica's house.
Excursion with Max and Erica to a nearby mountain
Max and Erica took us to the mountain under which Grenchen is located. We were able to admire the Grenchen from above and also see the Alps. Very picturesque!
Self-guided tour in Zurich
On Tuesdays we had the day off, so we took the train to Zurich for a walk. We bought a special ticket that allowed us to use any transport for 49 francs during the day.
During the two weeks of our stay we had time to celebrate Sergey's birthday, Lada's birthday, and hang out at a party in our honor that Max and Erica organized.
Congratulations to Sergey!
We celebrate Lada's birthday with our company.
We called Max and Erica to our house and celebrated with them again.
Max and Erica called their Scientologists for a barbecue to celebrate our arrival.
The weather is great - September.

One sausage isn't enough for Max. ;-)
Eating and socializing.
There are many Scientologists from various countries in Ron's Org Grenchen. Greece, Mexico, Argentina, Japan, Germany, Spain, France... But everyone speaks English.
Chatting with a French Scientologist, an oldtimer Scientologist. He told us the story of his Scientology life. We persuaded him to record it on video in an interview format. He doesn't want to, but promised to think about it.
Everyone is lively and cheerful.
Ron's Org has a pretty big hall, so there's plenty of room.
Everyone comes to the party with some kind of food to treat those who want it.
A picture to remember with Melinda and Dirk Hauri.
