Day 0, Geneva

Tomorrow the International Board meeting begins here in Geneva, Switzerland. On that day, Monika and I will participate in the Gertrud Baer seminar, a meeting designated for young members, as well as those new to the organization. We've had time these past couple days to do some sightseeing on foot and by bus (the public transit system here is extensive, lovely, and free for us). We're pretty much in love with Geneva. It's gorgeous and architectural marvels are everywhere.

This afternoon, we met with Susi to update her on the activities of US YWILPF and to get some valuable input on our activities. We also had a wonderful lunch with the interns in the Geneva office, who are very busy and very friendly.

The hostel we're staying in is wonderful (and clean and safe). We'd recommend it. A ton of WILPFers are also staying here--it's completely booked for the week.

That's all the news we have for now, but look forward to a much longer post tomorrow!

Au revoir,

Robin and Monika
