When we moved to Geneva as a family, we lived in an area of town called Champel. It sits on a hill above the city and might be compared to the upper east side of Manhattan. My mother in law lived in Champel and it was important to us that the children and grandparents have easy access to one another. Our place was on the edge of town just above the Bout du Monde, a large sports and recreation area. The image above was my early morning view. The mountain you see in the distance is actually in France. You might think that whatever weather one saw in the morning was a precursor for the day. But this is not true for Geneva. I have never lived anywhere where the weather was more changeable and unpredictable. You might start your day warm and sunny but end your day gray and freezing.
