One of my biggest worries when I moved here, was being lonely. I have a great group of friends in Boston that I miss terribly. Having support when you are out of your comfort zone is one of the most important things to have.
Thanks to Roche, and their newcomer support, I have met quite a few ladies that I know will be friends forever.
Marta lives in Riehen with me, so we see each other the most often. We get together at least once a week for coffee or a walk, and joined Basel Walkers together on Mondays. We go shopping and are in German class together.
Marta is from Italy - one of my only non-America friends over here, and I am grateful for her. Her husband is also on a long term assignment like Mat is, so we are in this together. Thanks to her, and Donna, Sue, Tiffany, and Angela....I am more at home.
