These photos were taken in Renens, Switzerland, around 8am this morning as that is when the sun comes up here this time of year.
It’s like getting up in the middle of the night if you have to get up at 7:30am. I have been sleeping in until 8:30 most days when I am in fact used to getting up at 7:15am every day. Amazing.
|This whole scene was within 4 minutes, changing rapidly.
It really did change to this bright orange within minutes and couldn’t have lasted any longer than that.
Getting ready to go to school today- International School of Lausanne to help with room decor for the music dept.
Accreditation committee trickling in from Tunisia, France, even Connecticut USA, and various other places. They will all be here by this afternoon.
Big week and weekend at the school. My teacher host, Christopher is head of the school’s accreditation committee, organizing events, meeting the NEASC members as they fly into Geneva, and doing an intensive and fab job. He showed me the reports and they are awesome.
Tomorrow is a meet and greet for faculty and admin. I’ll be the official photographer for this event.
Clouds over the mountains today. Can barely see them. Weather is nice and cool too. Nice change from the hot and humid Florida weather though.
Finally got my train and bus pass that will make things much easier in the transportation department. Went exploring yesterday with my tourguide to Lausanne and to places like Migros and Coop, the home depot and supermarket places. Found art supplies and will probably go back this week to get some canvases, paint and brushes to make a housegift for my teacher hosts. Lausanne is so very culture oriented with art and photography museums, concerts, musicians and artists. I love being here in this atmosphere. Reminds me a lot of Boston.
Planning my trip to Venice now with much more enthusiasm. Will be my first trip there.
And my bad French is at least getting me what I want most of the time. Practice practice.
C`est le temps pour le petit déjeuner – breakfast – tea and croissants et confit, fresh.
And those famous red shoes from Paris purchased on my last trip there are in the top photo. Cute.
