I've been in Geneva for two weeks now and, to be honest, haven't left the apartment much. I am so far behind schedule with my writing that I need to concentrate on that rather than sightseeing. Since I've been to Geneva before, I've seen pretty much all the tourist attractions I need to see here anyway which makes it easy to buckle down and get some work done.
I have managed to get a couple of times to have coffee and take some photos though.
Facts about Geneva:
- You can get fined here for flushing your toilet after 10pm! Apparently though it's okay to drive around with extreme loud music blasting out of your car or to do repairs with a hammer the outdoor terrace of your bar after it shuts at 2am!
- The drug dealers on the street are really polite.
- It's really expensive. After being in places like Prague, I got used to not even checking prices. You can't do that here. It's about $5-6 just for a coffee (and often not even a good coffee).
- Geneva is a very pretty city. It's very easy to get around and most people speak about 50 languages.
- There is a corner on the street opposite my apartment. I think I have seen every man in this city piss in that corner since I've been here.
