Breakfast at 9AM helped kick the day off. An hour later I found myself checking out and once again heading back to Interlaken West. The rain started to pick up so the 30+ lbs of gear I carried felt even heavier. I made it within five minutes of my train’s schedule departure, but, as expected, the kiosk did not accept pathetically secured American credit cards. Therefore, I had to wait at the ticket counter and made the train by a minute or so.
Three hours later, I arrived in Geneva (again, when you consider my mix up going from Zurich to Montreux). I found my hostel just using my memory from the map I pulled up in Interlaken. I killed the fifteen minutes I had until check-in by drinking a local beer and double checking my flight for tomorrow. Once I dropped off my luggage, I headed out on the town and explored. The guide provided gave a decent outline, but I also supplemented it with information from TripAdvisor, etc. Here’s what I shot!:
Having checked out the above, I returned to City Hostel Geneva to double check the route to the United Nations. Shortly thereafter I found myself taking these photos of one of the most important place in the world:
I had originally planed to go to CERN as well, but the guided tours get booked months in advance. I really did not feel like siting through basic museum exhibitions mirroring what I could research more easily on the internet. Instead, I hit up a local brewpub, had some brews (obviously). A late night Doner Kebab kept me going until 2:15AM when I finished updating my blog. Time to sleep a few hours before my early flight back to ‘Merica tomorrow morning!
