Nice to be here

I really like this forum - an incredible wealth of information here. I've looked for information already twice and decided to stopping being a lurker.

I live with my wife and 6mo son in Basel for 1 year already - before that, I was in Baden. I'm brazilian and she's canadian.

I'm looking forward to posting sometimes since there's a lot of things that I'd really like to know about and also being helpful if someone needs information I have. In the between, warm greetings from Basel to all of you

Good day to you - and to all other forumers

Re: Nice to be here

Loved reading your intro!! Where is your wife from? I'm currently living in Toronto, but, plan to move to Geneve next month. I'm a Dental Hygienist and I hope to find a job in my field. I really don't know at what else I'd be good at!!! Are there any cool children's clothes stores there in Basel?? Clothing a growing infant can be pretty expensive!!!
looking forward to hearing from you!!

Welcome, lufe, I'm sure you'll love Basel -- you'll be Brazelian soon.

Feel free to PM me if you need any settling in tips for Basel, I've just been through the process.

Hi there BRIGHT SMILE, aren't you moving to Geneva? It's a long way to travel to Basel for kids' clothes.

In Geneva, as in Basel, you are fortunate to have the option of shopping across the border. I'm sure you will find plenty of kids' clothes in France, at around half the price you'd pay in Geneva (especially once you claim the VAT back).

Re: Nice to be here

THanks LUFE; I'm definitely going over across the border. I was in paris about 3 yrs ago and I found clothes very expensive , so, I hope that a smaller city would offer better prices. I know I'm expected to pay about 2000.00 FR a month for a small apt; but someone else told me that I could get one for 750.00 outside Geneve and commute by train. A lot of changes.

Hi, actually my name is 22 yards, but I'm often confused with lufe. Happens all the time.
