Early Summer

Early Summer

Living room, looking into the playroomI took a tour of the Domain de la Grange at the park next door, open only once a year. Mainly it was a lot of listening to explanations in French that I didn't understand very well, but a bathroom from 1800's was quite interesting.


We went to a rummage sale in nearby Carouge. It's one of the few places where Kenny can buy things with his allowance.At Signal de Bougy, an open air park/playground type area, free but I believe sponsored by Migros, a grocery store chain




Looking down towards GenevaPeter always manages to get his ice creams smeared all over his face


Kenny and Peter and I took a trip to Lausanne, while Eric was in NC


At the museum in LausanneAt the music festival, park de Bastion


The rose garden at Parc la Grange, next to our house. Kids wade in the water all the time


There was a display of political comics along the waterfront, most of them dealing with IraqThe clock at the English Garden


Roasting a pig at a coworker's houseJean came for a visit! She and I went up the Saleve




The inside of the buddhist monastery at the SaleveThere was some kind of community fair at the Parc la Grange. Some interns from the UN were demonstrating an insulated cooker designed for refugee camps


It was NOT very well publicised at all!


A rainbow from our apartment balconyAnother street fair/rummage sale, this one in our neighborhood (Eaux vives)


At Yehan's birthday party. Alison hired a photographer who took some great pictures!












Geneva, from the Saleve


This helicopter made a few landings on the Saleve. I think it was a police helicopter doing training


Looking out towards France


At the Fête des écoles (end of school year festival), in Parc La Grange. Peter loved the climbing wall. This is one of the many things here (a five year old, on a climbing wall by himself, no release forms to sign or anything) that you wouldn't be able to do in the US.


Hot dogs here basically come as a bagette with hole poked in it, and a hot dog stuck in there


The kids singing, at their end of school concert
