Dinner adventures in Geneva

IMG_1040.jpg After flying/traveling for around 12 hours, we finally arrived in Geneva. The bus ride to our hotel was around 20 minutes, and I was dying to change clothes and take a shower (since I had been up for over 24 hours).

Once everyone had moved into our rooms (the beds are extremely small!!!) we decided to explore Geneva. I wouldn’t describe Geneva as one of those amazing European towns; however, the lake Geneva rests on is gorgeous.

Eventually we all got hungry, and our walk around Geneva turned into a quest to find cheap food. This was a disaster! I will never attempt to find food with this group again. It took us 30 minutes to find a place to eat, and the food wasn’t even that great. We found some small pizza place that also served Ethiopian food. The cook/owner spoke no English (or decided not to speak it). He kept asking us questions in French and we just nodded our heads and said oui.

Finally the pizza arrived, and we all had a great time laughing and joking about our quest for food.
