Following an invite by Mattias Nutt to join the local GRTweetBier meet up, Ambassador LeVine and her husband, Eric, decided to spend a whole day in Chur and get to know the capital of Canton Graubünden. Their visit started off at a training session of the Kantonspolizei Graubünden. They got to see the trainees in action and climbed into one of the specialized vehicles to go for a short ride in the Graubünden countryside before joining the police officers for lunch and visiting the Police Museum.
Their next stop was at EMS-Chemie and the Emsorama. Ambassador and Eric LeVine met members of the board and management as well as apprentices of EMS-Chemie who demonstrated their abilities, carried out chemical and electronic experiments, and showed them how the company prepared them for their future careers. At the very end, each and every one of the apprentices joined Ambassador and Eric LeVine for a group photo in the Emsorama.
Their next stop was The University of Applied Sciences HTW Chur, where they got a tour of the Education Zone with its open classroom, booths for cutting videos, and the recording studio. HTW Chur is closely linked to Somedia, the media company based in the same building which Ambassador and Eric LeVine visited next. Here, Ambassador LeVine spoke about her time in Switzerland and recent events in Orlando.

Last but not least, it was time to meet the local social media aficionados at their regular meet up #GRTweetBier. Ambassador and Eric LeVine enjoyed meeting the participants from all walks of life, chatting with them, and taking selfies.
