Swiss girl suffering from itchy feet

Hi all!

Born and raised in Switzerland, I guess I'm not exactly the typical EF-member. But ever since my exchange year in the USA back in high school (2002), I'm suffering from itchy feet.
Even though I highly appreciate all the opportunities my home country has to offer me, I sometimes get annoyed by its ways and people.

I found EF a while ago when looking for ingredients for American recipes. I stuck around because a lot of what you guys discuss here feels so familiar to me.

Because EF has helped me in quite a few situations, I finally decided to register in hope to be able to give something back. Maybe in form of some insight in the mysterious ways of Swiss people? Just let me know if there is something you always wanted to know but were afraid to ask!

Has mostly to do with synapses, axons and action potentials... anything particular you'd like to know?

Re: Swiss girl suffering from itchy feet

Since I'm from Zurich I can only tell you this much... probably not in Basel.

You should try the Institute of Mass Communication of UZH!
They throw parties a couple of times a year.
