Bonjour from a hot Geneva

I arrived in a very sticky Switzerland last night and have settled in well. I am making a real effort to talk some French and it is amazing how it comes back to you after all these years since school.

I have been wandering about in the city in sweltering heat and found some relief at the United Nations and International Red Cross museums which were pretty cool. I also checked out the World’s longest bench and the highest fountain!

Tomorrow I am off to the Bernese Alps to a town called Interlaken. I have purchased a Swiss railway pass which will give me half price travel, it is extremely expensive to travel here!

My first impressions of Switzerland is very positive and the Swiss (French speaking) people seem really friendly.
