Phd student from Hungary, new to Basel

Hey everyone,

I'm Gábor, 24 and I hail from Budapest, Hungary. I moved to Basel roughly 6-7 weeks ago to start my PhD in Physics at Uni Basel. Luckily I cleared the first hurdles and I'm starting to settle in at work, however my weekends tend to be a bit uneventful and I miss the buzz of people around during the last few years.

So I'm looking to hear from some of you guys who are maybe in a similar situation or if you're open to welcoming a youngster in your community.

I speak Hungarian, English, I manage with Serbian and a bit of German (which is quite rusty and I don't have the confidence to use it with the Schwyzerdütsch guys).

I saw the thread for the Pub Crawl and if nothing comes up I'll be there for sure

Hope to see you guys around,
Gábor

Re: Phd student from Hungary, new to Basel

Ah probablity theory, we meet again! Hmm, a variation of Buffon's needle problem, I think I'll have to take some time for solving it. Although I hope you were joking abot this being a pubcrawl prerequisite
