New Years Eve

NYE we got up early to spend the day skiing with Marc, Laura and Rosemary. There was so much snow that we were sure the day was going to be a success in the mountains, but in fact, it was coming down so heavily, it was hard to see where you were going- even with goggles. Soon, the snow started to get heavy and wet and the skiing stopped being fun for me. Just wet and freezing. I decided to head inside and have a hot chocolate while the others finished skiing :)

German NYE tradition

That evening, we headed to Rosemary's for her NYE party. It was great to see old friends and meet new ones. One guy that was there, was at our first NYE in Lausanne two years ago! It was fun to catch up with him and see what has happened in the past couple of years. After our potluck dinner, and some interesting NYE traditions by the Germans (of burning lead shaped figures to read your fortune...) we headed to the Cathedral with our champagne to ring in the New Year, Lausanne-style!
