Irish newcomer in Basel

Hello from Basel,

My name is Olivia and I just arrived in Switzerland last week. I'm a scientist working at Roche.

This forum looks great. I look forward to getting to know you all.

Slán go fóill,
Olivia

Like in Ireland, the national dish here is potato. They call it Röschti. Together with that, and the rain we have been having here lately, you should feel quite at home.

Don't forget that the Swiss are also every bit as passive aggressive as the Irish.

Re: Irish newcomer in Basel

Welcome.

There are several groups on facebook that organise get-togethers.

Basel Flouncers is one, and I'm sure someone'll be along to let you know what the others are.
