Jet d'Eau, right on the shore of Lake Geneva by a little marina, splashing whoever is lucky enough to have their assigned dock right under the fountain. According to the Geneva Tourism Office, the fountain pumps out 500 liters (132 gallons) of water per second to a height of 140 meters (460 feet) at a speed of 200 km/hour (124 mph).

In exploring more of the Old Town in Geneva, we stopped for lunch at the famous Chez Ma Cousine, the best food value for your money in Geneva. For 15 CHF, you get a delicious half of a rotisserie chicken, tons of fries, and a salad. House wine is about 3.70 CHF per glass.
|Tasty, tasty chicken!|

Finally, I visited the Natural History Museum (actually located very close to that Russian Orthodox Church). The Natural History Museum was probably better for children, but if you looked closely, there were still some things to keep the adults entertained.

It's been a great first week in Geneva, and I am looking forward to exploring more of the city and Switzerland this semester!
