Day 108 – Nothing to report

Work, work, … arghh! I need to get out of the house for a while.

I have made a long walk through the gardens of Genéve. My time here is coming to an end, so it felt a bit like saying goodbye to this friendly city, which has received me with open arms.

Here is a view of the chateau of Eaux Vives, and of its “little garden”. The aristocracy of Genéve certainly knew how to live.

Here are views of the Church of the Holy Trinity. The modern design has been the talk of the town since it was built, and the inside is hypercool. I apologize for the fuzzy picture, but it will give you an idea of the very simple altar and the slat windows. In each of the windows is a see through photo of a galaxy or cluster of stars, so you get the impression of being suspended in the middle of the universe.

A couple more views of the green corners of Genéve, which manages to be both a cosmopolitan city and a beautiful place.

What a neat church! You are right, Geneva seems to be that wonderful European blend of old and new!
