Life in Geneva

While most of my adventures in Switzerland have required a trip by train, there are also so many things to do around Geneva.  During Bastille Day, my little town of Ferney-Voltaire put on a celebration with fireworks. They even reconstructed Voltaire’s voice to read a short passage before the fireworks.

My coworkers and I after the fireworks.

A couple of times a week Geneva puts on CINÉTRANSAT, where they show movies outdoors by the lake.  We normally picnic before the movie starts.

They always have karaoke right before the movie begins.

The first one I went to was Top Gun. Great movie. I had Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away” stuck in my head for weeks.

As always, there are great hikes all around Geneva. This is from when my friends and I hiked the De Jura Mountains.

Geneva is at the very right end of the lake.

This is from a hike up Le Môle.  This hike is unique because it gives you a 360° view of the valley.  At the very top, is a path only about 2 meters wide.

    Yen,

    Great pictures; it looks like a wonderful hike. It makes me reconsider an earlier decision not to return to Geneva.
