    Just after leaving the Camera Museum we have noticed strange "something". After a bit of examination we have found out that it is called "Le Centurion", and that it is the mobile sculpture.

  • On the Lake in a Boat – Thing To Do!...

    Compagnie Generale de Navigation sur le lac Leman offers possibility to travel by boat from one to the other spot on the shore of Geneva Lake.

    I was told repeatedly not to miss the Saturday market. I could hardly miss the Saturday market since, with the Marche full of carnival, the vendors set up their booths in the old streets of Vevey.... at 6:00 in the morning, right under my window! The market was indeed worth seeing. I'm a huge fan of produce but I saw things I couldn't identify....
