I had only the morning to explore the city of Geneva proper before continuing my journey on the train to Interlaken in the afternoon. I was up rather early this morning which was okay considering that my hotel room wasn't that comfortable anyway.
I headed straight to the Main Station where I caught a tram to the United Nations Office. This was where I took pictures outside the main gates. Overlooking the Broken Chair Sculpture, this is a must-see Geneva icon for me. I also walked to the nearby International Red Cross Museum and took more pictures of the buildings. Since the museum is closed on Mondays (which was a pity), I wasted no time to head back to the city centre to have a quick breakfast followed by some grocery shopping at the German-owned, Lidl. Some of the chocolates and drinks were even cheaper than what I was paying back home. In expensive Switzerland, I was rather surprised.
After breakfast, I headed to the waterfront by the Rhone River to have more pictures taken. Against the beautiful mountains, I was blessed with clear blue skies, fresh air and crystal clean water at the
start of my Swiss journey. This was certainly a good sign for my coming days in this beautiful nation.
