I find it amusing that Evita and Maria laugh at JM's "a bit."
I realize that for Switzerland two hours is almost from one side of the country to the other.
But for me, living here in the geographically huge Canada, two hours is nothing. Nothing! If I were to drive for two hours, I would still be nowhere near the border with another province. I would only be in the next big city from mine.
My second university was a 7-hour drive from my home city; now that was getting to be a bit of a drive. Really, though, on a map, even that seven-hour trip covers a tiny fraction of my own province, let alone my country.
(Edit: In that two-hour time span, though, I could be in the US.)
