Rachel's ghost haunting Chillon Castle. Happy Halloween!

I think the best thing about Geneva is walking around the Lake at night and seeing the amazing reflections.

Le Palais Oriental

We worked up quite an appetite walking all over the castle, so headed in to Montreux for a wonderful meal at the Palais Oriental which features Iranian, Lebanese, and Moroccan food. Here are a few shots of the bathroom (always bring your camera, you never know what treasures you might find) and interior as well as outside where we were sitting.

Yummy hummus!

The clean-up crew.

Chillon Castle

Chillon Castle is to people living in Geneva what the Grand Canyon is to people living in Flagstaff, AZ. If someone is visiting, you must go there! Since I took many photos last year, I will only show a couple more that I took this time around.

New Bird!

We have a new bird at the feeder! Anyone know what he is? We call him Zorro because of his mask.
UPDATE: After doing research, I believe this is a Blue Tit. It is hard to see any blue on him in these shots, but I've come to this conclusion because of the stripe and song he makes. It seems we also have Great Tits coming to the feeder. Maybe I'll post a photo of one of them someday. But, for now, I have to get back to the shots I took while my friend, Rachel, was visiting. Thanks to Scott for sending me down the right road!
