2019-10-10 (Day 283) Jet d’Eau

We are visiting friends who live in Switzerland this weekend.
When we arrived at the airport, we were given a ticket that gives us free public transport to get us to the city centre. This is not for a specific route, but is time-limited, which is a good idea.

After checking in to our hotel we went for a walk, heading downriver towards the lake.

The city is very pretty, the lake area especially so. This waterspout – Jet d’Eau – is located at the start of the lake. People would come out of their workplaces and walk to the waterside, strip down and go for a swim before going home. While the water was clar as a bell, it did look rather too cold for me to be tempted!
