the happy land of banks and chocolate (Switzerland that is..) oh yes, and knives

in Geneva
So right now I live in France in a town called Annecy. I've been here for a month and it has flown by so fast, but I am very glad that my french has improved a lot. Annecy is really close to Switzerland and not too far from Italy, there is a beautiful lake and the Alps are really near by. There are lots of fun things to do here like go to the lake, go hiking, bike everywhere, eat delicious food, and go to music festivals and things like that.
There is a thing called La Fete de Musique and in all of France there is music all day long, all sorts and in every major town or city. It is the 21st of June and it is really cool!
My host family here is so nice I really love them. The house is beautiful and the people are really nice. Whoever said French people are mean was wrong hehe.
But Geneva is really close so I went there and saw the big fountain they have in the lake and last week for my break from school I went to Italy. My friend lives in Pisa so we started there and then went to Cinque Terre, then Rome. All of it was amazing. Brushcetta, piazza, gelati, panini, focaccia, mmmmm italian food!!!
