Pictures from Week Two

Exploring the beautiful botanical gardens one day after class. 

The Rose Garden on the other side of the lake was a hidden gem! 

Some of the food we craved this week included an American Cheeseburger (at Holy Cow) and authentic fondue (at Cafe du Soliel) 

On our final evening, the school hosted a fantastic dinner for students of both programs. We shared one last meal of memories! 
Nicole, Hannah and Brendo. 
Brett (middle) with two new friends from our program. 
They surprised me with a birthday cake. :)

All in all, it was a wonderful experience that I'll never forget! Au Revoir, Genève!

Pictures from Week One

Walked to the United Nations' headquarters on Thursday during our lunch break. Only a 5 min walk north of campus. 

Brett, Kristina & Hannah with some new friends who are in our program down by beautiful Lac Leman on Friday night after a big rain storm. 

At the top of Mont Saleve, France looking down at Geneva, Switerland on Saturday. The Jet looks so small! We hiked over 4 miles to the top over two hours and then took the cable car back down the mountain. 

Nicole, Brendo, Hannah & Brett at the Chillon Castle on Sunday afternoon. The castle dates back to the 1500s and it was wicked awesome!

Hannah, Nicole & Brendo at the Montreux Jazz Festival on Sunday afternoon. We walked 4 miles from the castle to Montreux for the festival. Great music, great day!

The American University Group at the WTO

On Monday, we had the pleasure of touring the World Trade Organization. After a very interesting tour about the history of the building, we sat down with David Shark, Deputy Director General, for a discussion about the politics of the WTO. 

Enjoy the pictures below!

Hi all, 

I am a big proponent of Twitter and being "in the now", so I will be "live tweeting" our journey while we are in Geneva. Feel free to follow along!
