Impressions of Geneva : Too French !!

Impressions of Geneva : Too French !!

Madrid, the city I live in, looks as described by someone on Facebook, like a big ugly bus station. Who knows where our taxes go? Home prices are still out of reach to most of us and the employment situation in Spain is one that can be described as abuse of employees. No career planning , no promotions, low pay, etc.

So more than ever I have an eye open, whenever I visit a more civilized town, to see if it is a place I can consider moving to.

Today I had a stopover in Geneva / Geneve Switzerland. Switzerland has a good reputation as a place to work and in terms of housing. So I was curious. I was already in Basel but didn't like it. Back to Geneva, it is true that 6AM on Sunday morning is not the best time to get an impression of a town, but still better than nothing.

Honestly, I didn't like it much. The people are very French there. They can't even count in English. So if you do not speak French you will have a nasty time. It's funny because in Greece I had no trouble but in Geneva I had a hard time even buying at the supermarket. Regarding architecture and historical buildings, Geneva had surprisingly little to offer. I strolled downtown and it looked mainly grey and moody to me. Very few people on the streets as well. Mostly deserted. Must feel very sad in winter.

Here are two pictures in Geneva:
