I have been in Basel the past few days to attend and present at the International conference on Transdisciplinarity. Read my reflection on it here. I also took some time to wander around Basel and took some photos. I found Basel an easy place to navigate and get around. See my online album for all the photos I listed online about Basel.
The couple in the photo below saw me prepare to take the photo and decided to share in the fun, so they waited for me to take the photo, greeted and then moved on. They are just one example – people here are friendly and even if they find it difficult to communicate in English they still try.
