Francois Hardy Chanson

A beautiful song from a beautiful artist

(This is the translation I got with the video)

Many of my friends came from the clouds

With sun and rain like a simple luggage

They marked the season of the sincere friendships

The most beautiful season of the four on earth

They have the sweetness of the most beautiful landscapes

And the fidelity of birds of passage

In their hearts its engraved an infinite tenderness

But sometimes in their eyes the sadness slips

Then they come to me to warm themselves

And you also will come

You can leave in the depths of the clouds

And smile again to many other faces

Spread around a little of your tenderness

When others wants you to hide their sadness

As it is not known what life gives us

It may be that in my turn I won't be someone either

If I still have a friend who really understands me

I'd forget both my tears and my sorrows

So, maybe I will come to you

And warm my heart to your wood

Promenade along the Quai de Mont Blanc (Right bank of the lake)

Last Saturday...the day of the Parade 2008. I wish I had pics of the crazy costume clad parade folks, it was crazy!!! We were on the calmer, saner side of the walk that day :))!!
These swans on Lac Leman have acquired celebrity status and get photographed as much as the Jet d'eau!!!

Brunswick Memorial.It is the tomb of Charles II the Duke of Brunswick (1804-73) who spent his last years in the city. At his death actually he bequeathed his fortune to the city of Geneva.

'Féte de Genève' starts end of this month around the lake (Lac Leman). So, Pont du Mont Blanc lights up with crèpe and panini shops, carousels, cafeterias, ice cream booths.....quaint little shops, good food, happy faces, bright colours!
