Hello!

Hi! I currently live and teach in Boston (originally from Chicago) and am moving to Basel with my Swiss fiance in May. I have a lot of hobbies including painting, music, and writing and am looking forward to meeting others with the same (and different interests). I am excited to meet new people and experience a new culture during my time in Switzerland.

Re: Hello!

hi , welcome to the EnglishForum.. and I would think you would be anxious to leave Boston ( and it's horrible weather ) behind now, not in May.

Ha! You are so right! After experiencing both Chicago and Boston winters, I'm ready for Basel!

Welcome to Switzerland and Basel in particular! There are
many social events on the Calendar. Check them out, and
you are bound to meet fellow EFers.

Re: Hello!

Welcome welcome!

Boston+music... does that imply Berklee?
What instrument(s) do you play?

Ciao from Southern Switzerland!

Hi Paul~ Ahh Berklee...so you're familiar with Boston? I play the piano and guitar. Hoping to get involved in a local music scene once I'm settled in Basel.

Well Berklee... Pat Metheny / Mick Goodrick and all that. I've heard my earful about the city and the jazz / music scene, for sure!

You into jazz or...?

Paul
