On the Waterfront of Lake Geneva

Geneva > Switzerland

Series On the Waterfront of Lake Geneva

The train from Lyon to Geneva trudged up through the lush green mountains alongside misty rivers and towns tucked away in the hills. Arriving in Geneva we trekked across the street to our hotel to check in. The room was small, expensive and luxurious. The layout was tight and efficient.

Afterwards we walked down to the lake and cruised around along the waterfront. The water and air were fresh and clean under a drizzly overcast sky.

Down from the harbor is a beautiful park headed by a blue sundial perhaps alluding to the renowned Swiss precision and punctuality. The park was populated by a variety of lush green trees and shrubs.

And then there was this crazy crooked tree here, looking much like it was in doing yoga.

On this particular day the city looked rather grim and washed out. No doubt the effect rain would have on any town. As this was just an overnight jaunt, we put it on our task list to visit Switzerland again for a thorough exploration.

After our brief stint in Geneva we took a train down to Marseilles for the next leg of our trip — the Cote d'Azur, where the weather was much sunnier and the water is blue and not green.

The ferocious cascade of Lower Yosemite Falls showered the whole area with a dense mist that was refreshing on a hot day.
