New and finally in Basel!

Hi everyone,

I posted a while ago saying I was moving to Basel for five months (doing a research internship). After a long journey I'm finally in Switzerland. I am from Atlanta, Georgia...just moved into my 'home' for the next months. I will be in a student housing on Giessliweg street.

So far, Basel seems great. The city is wonderful. The hardest part so far has been the language barrier. I found out I was coming here only a month ago, so my German is very minimal, obviously Swiss-German is non-existent. I'm still trying to learn German, but its hard because I don't know how I sound (I imagine very southern-redneckish german..) to others.

Anyway, looking forward to meeting some of you. I hit up Mr. Pickwicks today to watch some rugby and the Arsenal match, it was a great time.

Add me if you are near and would like to meet up or have any advice. I'll continue to check the events page!

As for my interests, I am very interested in joining a gym/run club and I love movies and all sports.
