Geneva Tied for # 2 for Best Place to Live


This article ranks the cities with the best qualities of life. Geneva #2 baby!

Business Week's Best Places to Live 2008

Geneva ranks high, but it also mentions that the survey doesn't take into account nightlife. Geneva would rank further down in that poll, without a doubt. Some of the clubs here are definitely not worth the price. A few weekends ago, we went out on the town at one of these fancy night clubs. Asked for 2 Heinekin beers and 2 bottle waters, which resulted in a 80CHF or $80 tab. Don't know what I was thinking, because tap water here is the same stuff they bottle up for Evian water. Paying $25 a beer is not my style either.

"Who's round is it now?"

Little trip in May

The pictures below are from a weekend trip:
-Annecy, which is about a 40 min drive from Geneva. It is a small town along a lake in the French Alps.
-The castle pics are in Avignon, which has the 14th century gothic Popes Palace and its famous bridge completed in 1185. That bridge used to be the only bridge over the Rhone River.
