Happy Easter from Geneva

early morning in Geneva
We arrived in Geneva, Switzerland by train from Rome yesterday. Geneva is a beautiful clean city with lovely gardens and expensive watch companies housed in beautiful buildings that line Lake Geneva. Lucy woke early so we got up and expolored the lake before even the big swans were awake, they were all nesting and were not bothered by our presence.
After breakfast we wandered up to the church for Easter service but they would not let us in as it had already started, Lucy was upset because she just loves churches. We found a playground and she swung to her hearts content.
One amazing thing here is the Jet d'eau that pumps 500 litres of water per second to a height of 140 metres at a speed of 200 km per hour and of course the incredible amount of watches here. I think it is about time I had a Longines.
