We spent the day driving around Lake Geneva which is about a 2 and half hour drive. The lake is the largest in Europe. We stopped in Geneva which was about half way of our drive. Geneva is one of the larger cities we have visited, and they also have the most parks– 20% of the city is covered in green space. There were plenty of people out exercising and enjoying the Sunday.
We parked in the center of the city and walked around the waterfront for awhile. They have a large water display, the Jet D’Eau, in the lake. It shoots so much water in the air that at any point in time there is 7 tons of water in the air. We walked to one of the parks which happened to be a botanical garden. 🙂 I don’t think I ever get tired of taking pictures of flowers. It was actually a pretty nice botanical garden considering it probably is pretty cold here in the winter.
Tomorrow we leave Vevey and head to Colmar, France.
Is Switzerland really as clean as it looks? Love the exotic flowers!
We learned that the Swiss are very compulsive about their street cleaning. Seems like the clean the streets daily. It makes it nice for the tourists 🙂
