comment Did not declare jewelry from Aruba
My thoughts exactly. They're running a scam. A scam in which they give you a more valuable diamond than what you paid for? Unlikely!

comment Is there any list of countries I should not visit if I want to go to the US?
@user626528 That is just a list of stamps that happened to be in his passport. Not all of them were responsible for triggering suspicion. According to the story, the agent interrogated him about Sri Lanka and Yemen.

With Italian trains, don't schedule your connections too tightly, since they don't always run on time. Particularly the local trains, an hour delay is not that unusual.

comment Would renting a car in Basel, Switzerland be safe for a foreigner?
Public transport in Switzerland is excellent. Check out the Basel network map to see if the places you want to go are conveniently reachable by train/bus/tram before you rent a car. bvb.ch/en/timetable-network/liniennetz

comment What are the main differences in traffic regulations between the US/Europe?
Also good to know: in the US, the police car that is pulling you over will stop behind you, not in front of you. Fines are never issued on the spot, the police officer never handles money, and any suggestion of payment will likely be construed as attempted bribery.
