Je suis suisse!

My cousin decided to become a Swiss citizen after living in Geneva for the last 20 years. His naturalization ceremony was on Monday and he sent me photos. Swiss citizenship is one of the hardest to obtain, as he actually has to become a citizen of Geneva first, and then a citizen of Switzerland.  It's a lengthy written exam (which he aced) and more than one interview with very important people. He didn't give up his Canadian privileges, as he now holds dual citizenship.  Apparently, Canada is one of the few countries that lets people hold a dual citizenship. I never knew that.
