At the end of May, we had a chance to visit good friends in Switzerland for an extra-long weekend. This will be the first of four posts on our trip, covering the time we spent in Geneva.
We left Leiden early on Thursday morning and, one short plane ride later, were exploring Geneva before noon. We weren't meeting our friends in Lausanne until about 5 p.m., so we had a whole day to spend. The plan was to walk into the old city to find the cathedral, but since breakfast had been so long ago, and there was a lovely park on the lakeside, we decided to stop for a trail-mix break:
