Second First Impressions

This is my second time in Basel, although the first time was only a brief view, seen in a day. Of course a day in Basel is insufficient to do it justice. I am currently at the Institute of Nursing Science doing a week long summer class in research methodologies that will hopefully inform my dissertation. While we have spent a good amount of time in the classroom, several of us have found enough time to explore the streets and alleys of the main town. It is really quite quaint, what you hope and expect to see in a European city. The Rhine is magestic flowing through the city. Last night on our way home from dinner the moon was full and provided a dramatic backdrop to the river that looked like a postcard. Its been tough so far balancing our desire to see the city and get the most out of our classes including doing the homework assignments that are given to us daily. But its a fun challenge
