Well this is everyone's lucky day...3 entries in one day! The internet facilties at our hostel are fantastic, (not free, but relatively cheap)so we've been able to go on twice today. Like Kerry mentioned before, this is by far the nicest place we've stayed at yet (and one of the cheapest too...only 18 Euros a night!). We're in a 4-bed room with a really friendly young couple (about our parents' ages ) from Quebec, the beds are comfortable, bathroom facilities are nice, and there is a common kitchen.
We ate out tonight at a Thai restaurant, which was delicious; Geneva is very internationally orientated and reminds us a lot of back home! As Kerry also mentioned I believe, French is the official language, but English is also very widely spoken. So Kerry's fluency in French has come in handy, and it is also a very nice change to be able to speak in English and have most people understand you!
As well, after having our first Swiss chocolate bar (which was amazing), a 1 Euro cappuccino, and finding discount shoe places (typically unheard of here!), we yet discovered why exactly Switzerland is thus far our favourite country...
This is what it looks to be...we found our first European Starbucks; it has a been a good day to say the least. I won't tell you what we paid for our coffees, but in our minds, it was a good investment! Other than the great coffee, it felt good to sit in a oversized chair and chat; it was a familiar environment in what has been for the last week and a half, a very, very unfamiliar environment. Anyways, it's off to bed for us! Write again tomorrow. Take care and Bon Soir!
