I like it, even though it's bloody cold. It's still a 'clean' cold rather than one which just pierces right through you. We're in Geneva for another day, for our Christmas break, and are slowly picking up Swiss ideosyncracies, such as every train always leaving to the minute, walking in the street being somewhat of a relaxed task - stopping randomly isn't something for some people, it seems to be for everyone. It's not as straightforward as you might think to just pop into somewhere for a bite to eat, but public transport is extensive, quick and easy to use.

There's a relaxed, almost American West Coast attitude here, which is disarming. Maybe it's down to the extremely high level of relative affluence which is easily noticeable in the street, maybe it's because the international community is so huge. Either way it's somewhere I want to visit again, and that's without even having had our long-awaited fondue yet. That comes later - this club sandwich was a Christmas Day evening snack last night!
