Tearley,
Thanks a lot for the advice. I will drop Renens from the list. St-Sulpice was on our list (and highly recommended by my wife's colleague) but I would rather not drive to Geneva every day, so a train station nearby is a big plus. Taxes need to enter into consideration as well. I may ask you more about that when we are having a beer. By the way, did you find a tax advisor to help you ease the pain of double taxes?
Definitely up for a beer! What field is your husband in?
Vlad.
Sounds great. PM us when you'd like to get a beer.
I know some of the young faculty and senior staff also live in Morges and like it a lot. Morges is very pretty and on the train. Lausanne is great too, such a pretty city, especially since you want to be near the train for easy commuting.
Yeah, double taxation is going to suck. Hopefully, we'll get a bit of a break with the tax treaty and the fact that my husband started on the first of the year--at least no mixed incomes over the tax year.
My husband is an aerospace engineer by training but got a job in mech eng. (I'm an archaeologist by training, instead, and finishing my phd at Hopkins, working mostly from CH now.)

I presume you are writing your thesis now. It's nice that you were able to arrange to do that from CH. I am a physicist by training, my wife is in chemistry.

I am from Kiev.
When are you expecting your move to happen? If you are still in Kiev in August/September, we should all meet and see how our daughters get along.

We are having a birthday party for our daughter tomorrow in Walnut Creek!
Many people are saying that it is hard to leave from NorCal. We'll just see if that's true.

Previously we were expecting to move in the beginning of August, but we still don't have visas. The employer, who applied for the visa for us, told us that the few steps of the process passed successfully, now they are waiting for the final step.

It means, that our move may be delayed and happen later in August or even in September. As we have no visas, we haven't define the exact date of the move and haven't order air tickets yet. I will let you know when it becomes clearer.
