After a long train ride from Germany I finally arrived to Geneva. I must tell you about my over night train ride first. Everything was going great until around 3am. I had a big gruesome looking man get out of his assigned seat to come sit next to me. I was trying to sleep. At one point I woke up and he had his blanket covering me. I threw it off of me... disgusting! After this I could not sleep well. I turned my head at one point and he was laying his face so close to me... I must have fallen back to sleep because I woke up with him on my neck. I wanted to VOMIT! I started screaming calling him everything you could possibly imagine. I was saying YOU SICK ____ get off of me! I woke up everyone on the train. I was trembling.. i have never been violated before. I had to call my mother from my cell phone. I didn't mean to upset her but I was hysterical. I dont recommend traveling by night train if you are alone. Its not too safe!

So once I arrived to Geneva I was exhausted. I decided to take a walk by the lake. Its so relaxing... I just sat there for a while enjoying myself. It reminded me of how much I love Switzerland. I was to meet Heather at the hotel she booked. She was running late so I went ahead and slept for a while. It felt so great to be in a nice hotel. No more hostels for a while. It was crazy when Heather arrived. We were screaming and hugging. If you dont know this is another friend from Austin. She came for the Swiss wine festival and my Birthday!!!! We both rested then decided to give an old friend a call that lives in Geneva. We soon were on our way to Ygor's flat for wine and chocolate. We had a great night reminiscing and chatting about old times. Geneva is such a groovy small city.

Thursday Sept. 22nd
Heather and I slept in of course!!! We love to sleep late and we are all about relaxing. When we finally started moving we walked to the lake to enjoy a beautiful view of Geneva. I could sit here for hours people watching and feeding the birds. We are resting up for the big wine festival this weekend. For dinner we went to eat at Soupcon. This is a chic restaurant owned by one of Ygor's very good friends. Talk about some fine dining! Thanks Heather! :) At the end Jaques(restaurant owner) came at chatted with us.. he is a super funny guy! Nothing but good times!
