Pergi ke negara-negara di Eropa, gak afdol rasanya kalau tidak mengunjungi kota tua. Kota tua di Eropa biasanya terawat dengan baik. Senang rasanya melihat bangunan-bangunan yang terawat dan masih digunakan. Kira-kira kapan ya kota di Indonesia bisa seperti ini.
Untuk jalan-jalan di kota tua Geneva saya menggunakan aplikasi Self-Guided Walking Tours Geneva Switzerland. Saya pilih yang lite a.k.a. gratisan. Memang tidak ada menu khusus untuk kota tua, tapi setelah beberapa waktu tinggal di Geneva dan beberapa kali mengunjungi kota tua setelah beberapa kali membaca aplikasi ini, kira-kira inilah beberapa tempat yang bisa dikunjungi di kota tua Genewa.
I love going out in good day especially if there's a company to walk with. Pictures of me taken by Wira.
Today, Wira and me went to Geneva 82nd International Motor Show & Accessories. The event was held in Palexpo Geneva from March 8th until March 18th. Entree ticket 16 CHF for all day pass, but Wira was able to got 2 free passes. Yeayy... It took almost 5 hours to go around the show. So many beautiful cars and some are our dream cars :) Actually, I didn't really understand about cars, but this is one of the event that Wira really looking forward to see. According to Wira, this is one out of 3 auto show that's worth to see.
On March 6th, 2012, Wira and I went to Raclette Night. This event was held by CAGI at Societe Des Vieux Grenadiers. We only have to pay 20 CHF for all you can eat raclette and first drink. In Geneva, this is a cheap price to eat. There's a lot of people come to this event.
The event start with explanation from one of the member of Societe Des Vieux Grenadiers. And then continued with ate raclette until you drop. It was fun and full.
Today I took my 30 minutes walk on the street behind our apartment. It's a nice street with nice houses and other buildings. I took my camera with me and start taking pictures.
Geneva still frozen on the second week after snowy day. The temperature still reach 10 below 0. Because we still curious about more frozen around Lac Leman, we decided to go to Versoix. In Versoix you can see cars that froze near the lake. This cars had made news all over the world. So we had to see it ourself.
We took bus number 5 until Nations and continue with bus V until Versoix. When we reach Versoix, there's a lot of people. It became a touristic site in this few weeks. I took plenty of pictures and about an hour later we decided to went to go Carouge to take pictures in less icy place. Yeah...our feet started to numb after standing on ice for an hour.
Note: Pictures of me taken by Wira. Pictures of us taken with Joby.
From Versoix, we continue our journey to Carouge. Still in the area of Geneva, this place offer you different architecture with other part of Geneva. The building in here mostly only 2 floor, some are 3. This place has it's own charm. I've been planning to capture this part of Geneva for quite sometimes. And finally in a cold day, we went there and take some pictures. Still think about walking along the road and take more pictures of Carouge.

Last day in 2011 and in few hours will be the beginning of 2012. We try to found out what Geneva will have for the count down. Some rumors said that Geneva not have fireworks this year. And in their website, they only said about light and trees festival and bands playing in Old Town. Yeah...the celebration was held in Old Town Geneva.
So...we decided to go there around 9 o'clock. We buy daily bus ticket that can be used until 3 a.m. We're leaving home with a thermos of hot chocolate and camera. Taking bus and then continued with tram and ended with walking to the Old Town. The night is quite cold but there's no snow.
