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!

  1. I am not sure how to create a blog post, so I will post a comment for these great pictures!

    Geneva is a very international city, and so was a great setting for our program. Our visits to the World Trade Organization and the International Telecommunication Union were informative and interesting. There is a very beautiful old town with plenty of museums to visit, great places to eat and to have coffee, and nice walks on the lakeside. And of course, there are chocolate shops to get some delicious Swiss chocolate.

    The program itself was very well organized. Every day, there was a morning and afternoon lecture/workshop that covered many different aspects of trade policy and international trade issues. For a good number of these class blocs, there was a choice between two or three different topics to go to. There were also a few evening academic activities. For example, a U.S. representative from the U.S. mission in Geneva talked to us about current trade issues. We also attended a public panel on present-day internet governance.

    I definitely learned a lot by participating in the program. I would recommend it to anyone who has any interest in international trade or wants to learn more about trade!
