Geneva. Is. Beautiful. We arrived last week and have spent our first bit exploring, swimming, working (playing catch up!) and trying our hardest to learn some French.
Cree's first day at the UN was last Monday, and he loves it....the research, the work, the people. Everything is right in line with his interests, and for that I am grateful.
Our living situation for the time being is a bit awkward, but we've become experts at making the most of it. It means all of our evenings are spent exploring Geneva, picnicking along the river and taking sunset strolls along the Rhone watching the boats come in. Not half bad huh?
We were also lucky enough to meet the lovely Stephanie Duvall of 70 Percent Pure (just try not to get stuck on her blog for at least a half hour). She kindly invited us on a walking tour and home cooked meal our first weekend here. She took us all over the city...to her favorite parks, shops, restaurants. It was the perfect welcome! She made us feel so at home in Geneva. The only bummer is she only lives here part time, so we can't wait until she returns. I think a picnic will be a must.
I'm still trying to catch up on all the work I ignored while traveling, but in the meantime, I'm going to try to give some travel updates....and of course some much needed My Better Half posts.
Until then, au revoir!
