While Steen and Kirsten were visiting we made an excursion to the top of Salève which is the mountain that is most clearly viewed from our balcony as well as Geneva in general.

The trip involved a busride to the French border, a short walk to the village on the other side of the border and finally an aerial tramway - called a téléphérique - up the side of the mountain.

Saléve is approximately 1375 m højt and the view was amazing (see above). We walked further on - up and away from the téléphérique area - and enjoyed biscets and grapes while we admired the thunderstorm that were passing across Geneva below us (see photo below).

We were less excited when - contrary to our expectations based on the direction of the wind - said thunder storm hit Saléve just as we were making our way back to the téléphérique! Lets just say that we became RATHER wet...
