We spent an entire day at Ballenberg walking the whole path. This is a great place that has buildings and animals representing all the areas of Switzerland (mostly historical). We happened to be there during the cow festival, so saw quite a few different kinds of cows.

Our apartment is in France literally across the street from Switzerland. We commute every day from one country to the other! If you look closely, you can see where the dirt field turns a slighty lighter color. That is the border!

The World Health Organization is headquartered in Geneva. The main building was designed by Swiss architect Jean Tschumi who died before it was built making it the last building he ever designed. It was inaugurated in May of 1966 (that would be the month and year I was born!).

We have a small commute every morning to get to work by car. Scooters and motorcyles pass most of the line of cars. The nice thing is that there is a mixture of small neighborhoods and farmland. We also drive by the end of the airport runway, so sometimes see planes coming in for a landing. We see buffalo too, but I haven't taken any photos of them yet because they are in a tricky place to stop the car.

This is Cameron. He works at our favorite Indian/Pakistani restaurant in Ferney called Shalimar. The fact that they actually have a website is amazing in these parts!
We usually get our orders to go and are treated to one of these delicious juices (with or without alcohol) while we wait. Good customer service!
