Our final week of relative freedom before the start of our physics classes officially was rather uneventful. Upon inspection of my camera roll, I realize that my sole new photo from this week is from my morning run around Lake Geneva on Wednesday (featured above). Dan and I learned a lot about the longevity of coconut milk, we were treated to a lot of free food, and our beloved French class came to an end.
Having (somehow) been in Geneva now for an entire month, this seems like an appropriate time to reflect on my time abroad so far, exploring first impressions, personal growth, etc. But instead of doing that, I just have another weekly update for y’all. In this week’s episode, I get my CERN project and we explore Switzerland’s capital!
In this week’s brief post, we have only two days of real class, we find a place to patinage sur glace, and I make a brief aside to explore Switzerland’s paprika fascination. Oh, and Dan and I went to Paris! But you’ll have to wait a couple days to hear that story….
Today, on “Maddie’s Adventures in Switzerland”: a tram accident, lots of French food, and a day trip to a Swiss town whose mountains are straight from a wanderlust Pinterest board.
For all you curious souls asking about our itinerary for the next six months, I’ve compiled a tentative outline of our schedule. (Nana, this one’s for you.)
