Trip to Lausanne Part 4 : Geneva

This post concludes my trip to Switzerland. I took the train from Lausanne to Geneva on the morning of the last day, since I it was only about 2 hours West of Lausanne. Both cities are adjacent to the lake, so the train ride was right along the scenery that I had been admiring ever since I came.

This time the train was a double decker, and I chose to go up. And there was a little (quite big, actually) space for kids to play.

These children friendly environment are awesome.

When I got off the Geneva station I walked to the Rousseau Island, which is a very small island in the middle of the river, connected by bridges. The island is dedicated to the philosopher Rousseau.

After that I walked into the city.

A cozy, small store with a fine show case.

I found a bunch of public dog-poop bags in the city and this is one of them. It’s nice that the public is kept clean by having these accessible to dog owners.

This giant flower clock is a major tourist attraction, so I pretty much blindly followed the guide and had to take a photo for extra evidence.

Unfortunately, the famous big Geneva fountain was under scheduled maintenance (every year apparently at the beginning of November), and I could not see it. Maybe next time!
