Re: we are shortly coming to live in basel from uk

It'll be interesting to hear what's changed since you've been away. To me the UK is a foreign country now as I have lived in Switzerland longer than there. Going "back" seems very odd with different money, driving on the "wrong side" of the road, walking around the supermarket wondering where to weigh the veg. Sounding like a strange foreigner but with a Brit accent which confuses everyone. Let us know what oddities you come across.
