Fireworks in Geneva

What could be more beautiful than fireworks on a lake? A spectacular display watched by crowds of – ooooo – I’d say at least several hundred. Yep. That’s Geneva for you.

I made the checkout boy smile in Manor when I left with ‘bonjour’. Hastily corrected, but still. The smile was there. He looked a bit like he hadn’t smiled all day, so it was well worth it.

Duck. In Geneva duck is Australian prices, ie duck breast is about $28/kilo. They had rolled duck prepared ready to roast, each one was just over a kilo. Buying one as a luxury turned into an absolute bargain as they were given a second one way free. It’s the cheapest meat I’ve bought since I’ve been here.

More tomorrow.
