Why did you choose to return to Basel?
I came back to Basel in 1972 and took a job at the pharmaceutical company, Roche, because it gave me the chance to return to Basel and offered the possibility of going abroad. So, I was in Basel for a few years, and then Roche sent me to Japan for five years. I had a girlfriend at the time, from Trinidad, and we kissed goodbye and thought that was the end of it. But then she got a ticket and followed me to Japan and we got married there.
