Day 272 – Geneva, Switzerland

We continued to explore Geneva this afternoon. Yesterday we toured Geneva’s Old Town while today we discovered “International Geneva”, a city which is home to many important international organizations. We began our walking tour by visiting the former headquarters of the UN, Palais des Nations. We then proceeded to pass by various other organizations which call Geneva their home (World Trade Organization, UNICEF, etc.). After completing our sightseeing, we headed back to our hotel early to catch Ryan’s mom and brother Matt on SKYPE. Congratulations Matt on your upcoming wedding this Saturday!!!
