Exploring Geneva

Well we have almost made it through our first whole day in Geneva! It is about 7:30 pm here and I am updating the blog before heading to my room to watch a dvd on my laptop and eat Swiss chocolate :)

Several interesting things to note today:

*Bus. We waited in the rain last night for a bus that only comes once an hour. It came. We stood right outside the doors and waited for them to open. The people on the inside looked at us. The bus drove away.

So we learned the hard way that we must push a button to get the bus doors to open or it will drive away from you!!!

*Sleep. We went to bed at 9 pm and woke up at 11 am. Aaaah.

*Walking. We decided to "hang low" today, so we took a walk around the block. Which turned into walking all the way to downtown and the lake and such.

This picture doesn't do justice to the amazing view of mountains we have right behind the place we are staying...

The famous jet d'eau in Lake Geneva.

*Fondu. We had some delicious, and expensive, cheese fondu today. We also found out that they don't serve you water for free here....we had to pay almost 5 Francs for a bottle of water!

Yep - that's me eating fondu :)
