Now jingle eggs, jingle eggs.

Good Friday in Krakow today.
Yet spring has totally forgotten to visit us.

Jet de l'eau

Finally! It started to feel a bit like spring in this neck of the woods.

Today, the magnificent Jet de l'eau was open. It is one the landmarks of Geneva, reaching 140m high.
I guess, it falls in the same category for some people (like me...) that in a picture is "meh.." but in person is jaw-dropping. I particularly like the fact that it is visible from various parts of the city, rising above the buildings. Well done Genevois, well done.

This fountain, has an interesting history that I welcome you read here.

Vitamin D, I missed you so!

Bonjour, Genève!

As many of you know, we both have changed locations. For many reasons, we are going to keep the name of the blog intact.

My journey continues in Geneva, Switzerland. Unfortunately, the weather did not allow for a better picture, but there you have it, a first impression of the city. I welcome you to have a look at the map. Geneva and many other cities are located around a gorgeous lake. The boat you see on the picture, is part of the public transportation system!

Fun facts about Switzerland, there are four official languages: German, French, Italian, and Romansh. In this area of the country, the most frequently spoken language is French, which means it is time for me to learn a new language... Fortunately for me, Geneva is a very international place with almost half of the population being immigrants. This of course means that the locals are used to dealing with foreigners. Many major international organizations are located here, including the United Nations, CERN, and the Red Cross.

It seems I am going to have a lot more impressions to share with you in the next months. Here's to new beginnings!
