Basel, no Basle, Swiss ! Oh SWISS!

From New York to Basel, again we had some research to do but I’d rather not tell dull stories but show some pictures AFTER work!

To brighten up this page I add some scans of postcards and other material I brought with me:

Statue of Lucius Munatius Plancus

Basel Schifflaende

We went up (of course by car) until the building on the mountain.

That’s all folks …….

  1. Hi, Lani.

    Your pics in Basel remain me of years in 70’s when I was in Basel with CIBA-GEIGY.

    Thanks for loading Basel’s pics.

    Kind regards,

    Good Morning, Bung Julius,
    Because I had my basic training in Chemistry in Aachen (Germany) I have made one of my industrial practices (3 weeks) in Ciba Geigy, Basle. I was interested in synthetic fibers then.
    Later when I became head of the technical laboratory for petrochemicals in Jakarta I visited that company again to discuss certain aspects of polymer stabilization. The pictures date from that period.
    Thanks for having visited my site.
    Lani
