Beautiful Switzerland!

We are having so much fun exploring Geneva! After a day and night of flying (Daron slept on the plane, I didn't... hence the rather touristy-looking Mel in the pics after being awake for 24 hrs), we set out today to enjoy all the sights in our soon-to-be-home for the next few years... even with the overcast sky and rain, it's beautiful.  We saw the world's tallest water fountain (on Lake Geneva - it doesn't look that tall in the pic behind Daron but it shoots way high up in the sky), the historic St. Peters Cathedral which took over 400 years to build, and just lovely little tiny cobblestone roads with vines going everywhere and pigeons all over the cute little squares with SUCH old trees that have amazing colorful bark on them.  Neat clock made out of flowers -- yummy 'pave de Geneve' (Geneva chocolate shaped in cobblestone style) Lunch was 2 CBO sandwiches at McDonalds (Chicken-Bacon-Onion) for $20 - ouch! Dinner tonight - Steff, you'd be proud: we did cheese and steak fondue! And Dustin - we thought of you as we took pictures of our food like you do when you travel.  More to see tomorrow (http://www.geneva.info/facts/) then Daron meets with his new team Thursday in the HP offices in Meyrin.  We love you all!

  1. Melanie! how fun! I'm such a sucker for history and just to think of all the history around you in Geneva. I can't wait to read all about your travels and explorations.
