A visit to Geneva
This morning we have a gloomy view from our balcony and decide to visit Geneva instead of the Matterhorn; tomorrow will already be our last day, so we hope to have better weather then...But even with this weather we have to make a picture of the valley from our balcony. The fast changing weather conditions give very spectaculair panoramic views.
We drive to the west, out of the Rhône-valley, and follow the south bank of Lake Geneva, so we have to pass the French and Swiss border four times. We don't like Geneva too much and after a few hours of walking we are ready to go back. Geneva is an important city, but not spectaculair and there is not much too see or visit. Well, that is the way we experience it.There are some nice buildings and it is a vivid place, but we miss something, something in the atmosphere, in ints character. Well, one way or another, it doesn't please us. We are glad we have seen it, but also glad to leave again.
We are back in our apartment quite early and enjoy the view from the balcony over the valley. Te sky is cloudy at first but becomes very bright and clear just before dusk. The temperature is so pleasant we can sit on the balcony for hours after dark.
