CERN, super cool, but without a tour, only sorta kinda worth the effort. I'd still love to go on a tour, so someday I'll have to book the tour and then the flights.
Geneva itself, not a lot there, honestly. Banks, watches and super high end shopping. Most people were doing shopping with only a few tourists wandering around the old part of town. I think it must have been one of the very first warm sunny days they've had, cause man, the folks who live there were out in DROVES!
Food, insanely expensive. 8 Swiss francs for a sandwich!!!! I'll grant, it was a good sandwich, but still.
I was so tired, so so so tired..... I ended up having a nap in a park, along with about 20 other people. Just lay out on the grass. That was marvelous.
I can understand quite a lot of French, but remain largely mute. It was coming back quickly, so I would probably be able to function in a relatively short amount of time, but goodness, the brain is a funny place.
I didn't get to see the following two pictures, you don't get to see that even on a tour, but they had some very impressive images up on the wall.....
These are actual CERN particles!!!
A CERN smile.
Had a nap under this magnolia....
The archaeological museum I wasn't willing to pay to go into.
Neptune, out for a walk.
Finally, there's all that Swiss efficiency, but honestly, a certain lack of information for tourists. It was all a little confusing, and not just cause I was tired.
