the sight was chosen after looking through a postcard stand, which proved to be a useful resource for photo background scenes. :)
when we arrived in geneva, (1) we were half a day late because of a cold front with heavy, continuous downpour and (2) all our stuff was double-waterproofed because of (see 1). of course, as soon as everything was twice repackaged into plastic bags, the sky cleared up.
…which is why we decided to at least enjoy our waterproofness one last time and drive through the nearby united nations fountain.
