So I was out roaming aimlessly around yesterday and I managed to pick up a pretty strong free wifi signal. Obviously this pleased me no end and I immediately sat down on a bench outside the art museum and wrote a blog post – it took at least ten minutes – and then by mistake deleted it. I was a little bit peeved at that.
Anyway – heres what I kinda wrote …
Its a big weekend in Geneva. Its something called L’escalade and its a celebration of, and I REALLY generalise here, when a woman protected Geneva by throwing a pot of hot vegetable soup out of her window onto the invaders below … Hmmm – Go Figure. Its a tradition to have replicas of the pot made from chocolate and filled with marzipan vegtables and blah, blah, blah.
Theres also lots of processions and parades and re-enactments and blah, blah, blah.
Really great stuff in fact … if thats what float your boat. Dont get me wrong I am normally very interested in history, culture etc … but lately it is only my future that is concerning me. Sorry to be such a misery guts.
But hey! … as you can see its a great time for all you families out there …. all you lovers out there … all you humans with purpose out there.
Yeah great time for all of those kinds.
Even catching a wee sight of Genevas famous water fountain from the lake there … you see it?
Yeah … great day for you lot.
Needless to say … it made me ponder a lot.
My mind just couldnt seem to find any solace … no, not solace even – it just couldnt register anything.
WHY NOT !!!
I lifted my head from my ponderous stroll and was given the answer by sheer fortitude herself …
Yip … there it was.
On the back of a signpost near the bustop I had to use.
But … It touched me very deeply.
I mean … it was even written in english.
