The next day, we checked out of the hotel and took the cable car up the mountain to check out the views and Kuklos, the revolving restaurant. We lucked out with a cool, but gorgeous day and had great views of the mountains and Lake Geneva. We enjoyed a drink and snack and watched the world spin! The restaurant takes an hour and a half to turn 360 degrees and now runs on solar power. Finally, it was time to head back down the mountain and home to Lausanne.

My Dad arrived about a week ago for his first visit en Suisse! It has been so fun having him here for some father-daughter time! Mark and I showed him some sights around Lausanne and took him on the ferry over to Evian. Being Chef Dad, I think he has hit up almost every grocery store in town, lol! We have had some fantastic home-cooked meals over the past week! He is staying with us until Tuesday and then he is off to Germany to visit our Berliner family!

For the second year in a row, Mark and I were in attendance for the fireworks display that is held every year on the closing night of the Geneva Festival. We were wowed once again with this year's show, it's theme being "An Evening at the Circus." Watch the video below for a compilation of videos I took during the display!
