What I’m going to write about when a get a chance tonight, I hope – The giant new terminal at LAX, my fabulous upgrade, the best seat mate of all time, a one hour delay that was no bother to me.
’22 Sep: Geneva, Switzerland
That’s my hotel, Hotel Cristal Design, and the statue is called “L’Immigré”, The Emigrant, and reflects the ever evolving nature of this neighborhood. Within one block of here I have noticed a United Nations of restaurants. And Starbucks.
I spent the day with Heidi. We tromped around plenty and then took a little drive to enjoy a bit of the lake.
First stop for me is (almost) always the cathedral. In Geneva the largest and most important church is St. Pierre Cathedral, originally built as a Roman Catholic cathedral but during the Reformation it transformed itself into a Protestant church.
A view while crossing one of the many bridges.
Chillon Castle (Château de Chillon), according to wikipedia, the first written record of the castle was in 1005.
We (Heidi and I) had a lovely day-trip taking the train to the end of Lake Geneva to visit Chillon Castle. I’ll talk about the various Swiss Travel Passes later, and the glory that is Swiss train travel.
Not My Pictures!
I didn’t get this view but I wanted to share one aspect of this gorgeous area.
Surf’s up on Lake Geneva.
