Stranger in a strange land

Had dinner last night with our friends John and Andrea Patient in Zurich. Strange to say that, because they live in a foreign land, I see them more than any other of my friends (except possibly Bob and Lynn).

Four years ago J & A lived in Basel at the time I went independant. My first contract was with a pharmaceutical company whose European HQ is in - you guessed it - Basel. So I would see them every time I visited which was about every six weeks.

Then they moved to Zurich. A few months later I acquired a second Swiss client based in - you guessed it again - Zurich. Now I see them once a month.

It is easier to visit them than many of my UK friends.

Life is strange.
