So I arrived in Geneva and had a bit of a time finding my hostel. The directions said take Rue de Lausanne in the OMC direction. Which meant nothing to me, and some people I asked. What made it more difficult was a lack of street signs around the train station. SO after about 30 min wandering, finding cool things along the way mind you, I found rue de lausanne and the hostel. It was nice, very big. I had my own private locker which waas great to just throw stuff into. After I found it I went down to the lakefront and walked along that road. There was a cool castle thing in a park I found that was celebrating the Swiss peoples love of cuckoo clocks, which was cool. Theres also this fountain called Jet D`leau (jet of water) which shoots this stream of watrer 103m high. It was really cool. I hung out there till sunset and go some really pretty pictures of the lake, the city, and mountainside all in one. Geneva is a nice little city, very diverse. Its funny though 75% of the buildings down by the waterfront were watch stores. So after that I just went home and slept, tomorrow is a big day in Interlaken.
