 The part of the lake here is a bright blue and not a dull grey like in Lausanne.

Thursday, Yann, Karen, Akane and I headed to Geneva for a film festival and a dinner out! We were all looking forward to this day and it could not have turned out any better! We were scheduled to see two films, but since the weather was warm and sunny we could not imagine sitting in a theater.

 Statue made out of recycled computers, soda cans, etc.

Instead, we walked around the beautiful big city, checked out a few shops, and went to the ice skating rink. While the others skated, I read my book and took photos (not a big fan of ice-skating, I have an irrational fear involving my fingers and the blades on the skates...eek). It was such an amazing afternoon.
 Ice-skating for only 2CHF!
We then headed to the theater for our show.

When we sat down for the movie, we realized that it was going to be a 3 hour program... No problem we all thought... then the movie began and we realized that 3 hours would feel like eternity with this show. It was the worst movie I have ever seen. After 1 1/2 hours we decided we had all given the movie a fair shot and we had rested a bit that we could move on. This was the FIRST movie I have ever walked out on. Wow. It was awful. Then we headed to a restaurant that a student in Yann's dance class owns. Amazing!

The service, ambience and food were all exceptional and we ended the night on a very high note. 

The restaurant makes a donation to the Children's Hospital in Geneva and at the end of the meal, they serve a variety of candy, as well, for a 1CHF donation. 

None of us wanted to leave Geneva for our small town. Reluctantly, we boarded the train and made it back home just before 1am.

What a day!
