If I can stay at yours, yes. It's too late to book something.

Re: Geneva's Lake Parade / Lake Sensation july 2010

off topic.. but I've always wondered what tourists must think when them come to staid, quiet Geneva and then are confronted with the sights (!!!?!?? ) and SOUNDS !!!!! of the Lake Parade.

Seems I'll miss it this year around... too bad, guess I won't be going there disguised in some cat ears and tails like the other times (even got me on TV that one, haha).

Re: Geneva's Lake Parade / Lake Sensation july 2010

What practical last minute accomodation options do I have if I can't get a hotel in or around the City ? Would love to pop down on Saturday, will have to be by train as flights are coming up with silly prices. Can go back Sunday some time...but will need to put my head down for a few hours before Monday...

In a few words, you follow some trucks with soundmachine and people on it, you try to look cool by dancing in the street and at the end of the day the trucks stop and become a huge club with different kind of music. (that's where the lake parade become lake sensation.

it's free, it's openair and it's once a year

Re: Geneva's Lake Parade / Lake Sensation july 2010

Well, bad news for me. My back's aching again, I have to see my osteopath tomorrow morning. It did that already last week, but well, hope.....

One thing is sure, I won't attend the parade this year

So, have fun for me....
