Boston in Basel

Is there anyone living in Basel from Boston? I thought i would meet a lot more Novartis transfers since there is a huge office in Cambridge, MA. Haven't actually met anyone living here from Boston though. Just curious! If your from Boston and living in Basel would be great to hear from you!

Re: Boston in Basel

I will be moving to Basel following my husband early next year (he'll be there starting this fall). I currently live in Germany but was born and raised about an hour south of Boston in northern RI. So...I can kind of say yes to your question...Go Bruins! Anyway, I'd be happy to make some new friends from Boston.

Re: Boston in Basel

I was born in Cambridge and when I'm in CH I'm in Vaud. Does that count for anything?
Yeah, Bruins!

Re: Boston in Basel

Hey! I lived in Cambridge/Somerville for 12 years. Now in Vaud. My husband is an MIT geek. I'll be visiting old friends there this summer. I'm wicked psyched to hang out at the bookstores late on a Saturday night. In Lausanne, they throw me out the door at 18h00!

Re: Boston in Basel

Re: Boston in Basel

does Metro-West ( framingham / Ashland ) and living in Vaud count for anything?

Re: Boston in Basel

Metro-west counts but living in Vaud doesn't! Maybe there is no one in Cambridge who wants to make the move to CH.

Re: Boston in Basel

Sigh. My visit was fun. 6 weeks.

Met my 4 month old niece who is of course the cutest baby in the world!! & I miss her terribly. My mom... not so much. What is it with moms??

But now I'm back in the antipodes! I have to say, I feel really far away from everything down here.

Did we find any more Boston-and-eviron-ians? We should do a get together. But don't you dare organize one before I get back to CH!

Re: Boston in Basel

Haven't found anymore, maybe if we keep this thread going we will! A get together is a great idea! I am sure we can find a few red sox fans in the crowd

Let us know when you are back! I'll be there for Thanksgiving this year.


p.s. i know exactly what you mean about moms!
