"No pole dancing" on a pole in the church.
It was late at night when we arrived at the train station to walk to the hostel. As soon as we arrived at the station, Adrienne was being cat-called by men.
We made it to the hostel and checked in to our room. We had our own room that night but had to switch to a 3 person room the next evening for 2 nights. Then, we switched again to a 2 person room.

The next morning, we met Allison and Anna. We headed to find breakfast. Switzerland is extremely expensive. The cheapest thing we found was a 7 dollar convenience store sandwich.
We then headed straight to the Cathedral.
As I mentioned before, there was a terrible accident and my SD card deleted about 150 photos. Unfortunately, they included the photos of inside the cathedral in Geneva and underneath the cathedral. Underground, there is a really amazing archaeological site underneath the church that you could visit. It also included all my photos of the famous fountain that shoots so high, Allison could see from the airplane. I have one photo of the fountain from my phone. I didn't take any pictures of the church with my phone. It's devastating.
The church, St. Pierre Cathedral, was the adopted home church of John Calvin.
They recently started excavating the Roman ruins and ruins of the original churches underneath the current cathedral. They are basically layers of old churches, graves dating back to the 2nd and 4th century. I took pictures of the signs explaining more about the church, but those pictures are gone. The first picture is the first one on this blog.
The graffiti saying "No pole dancing." I appreciated the How I Met Your Mother reference in the second picture, despite the fact that the person who did it was defacing a very old cathedral. I think they are the same person. The handwriting seems to be the same.
We walked up to the top of the Cathedral to look at the beautiful view. The cathedral is located in the Old City section of Geneva.
Lighting was a problem in the pictures.
The view of Geneva.
Naturally, I enjoyed taking pictures of the swans and ducks.
