Geneva photos

Time to continue with the trip. Today's photos come from our Geneva stop.

This fountain is huge. It shoots 400 feet into the air. For a sense of scale, look at the buildings behind it!

Yes, I shot a photo of a fire hydrant. I thought it looked interesting--the shape is unusual.

Chocolate, anyone? Yes, we went in. In fact, we brought back five pounds of chocolate with us! All different kinds! We even shared some, but we ate way too much of it ourselves (and enjoyed every fattening bite)! :)

I don't know what these soldierboys were guarding, but that didn't matter. The guy on the left had beautiful eyes. The guy on the right--well, check out the next photo.

Oh, baby! Come here and let me play with your gun! (And don't you love soldiers who can wear earrings on duty?)

Marc and his mom after some shopping.

This was interesting. It's a sort of car repair shop on wheels. To some degree, it's like AAA, but it appeared that this service went well beyond anything the local AAA tow truck can offer when you break down.

Here we see the mobile mechanic working on the customer's car.

I actually have a few more Geneva photos, but they can wait for another day. In the meantime, I hope you liked these.

Did you sing Smoke on The Water when you visited Geneva? :-)
