Day 5 - lazy...

Lazy day today... Didn't feel like doing anything so I just enjoyed the sun down in the courtyard... I finally decided to go to Geneva Welcome Center around 3 o'clock. It turned out to be closer than I thought, and I was there early. So I just sat for a while there, in Pastorale (yes, that's the real name of the place where the Welcome Center is!), reading a book... There is something about this city that makes you sit back and relax. Maybe it's the air... or the sounds of the birds... I can tell for sure that therapists would be out of business here. All the crap I was obsessing about just a few days ago - gone. Hey, maybe I'll become laid-back, gentle and optimistic by the end of my stay here. Yeah, right...

Anyway, after the Welcome Center I walked around Ariana Park, which is right to the Palais des Nations, found Ariana Museum of Glass and Ceramics (closed), and then followed Avenue de la Paix away from home. It soon turned into Route de Pregny, but it didn't seem that there was anything interesting there. Well, I saw barbed wire on top of huge metal fence and military dudes with guns. Where? In front of the Mission of the United States of America, of course! However, in the interest of fairness I have to say that when I passed by the Mission of Russia on the way back, I noticed barbed wire there as well. Oh, the countries of my life - so much alike!

I think tomorrow I am going to take my tripod out for a morning shoot in Jardin Botanique and actually take some quality pictures. And then there's an exhibit of Giacometti prints in the Museum of Art and History. Giacometti prints... My dreams come true.

The museums in the city of Geneva are free, by the way.
