He's just sharing that he flounced off the KFC trip. I think.

Re: Geneva International Motor show 3rd - 13th of March 2011

If you can complain about the Geneva Motor Show you can complain about anything. It's probably the best Motor Show in the World. Pretty much every manufacturer participates because the Swiss market is so open and the show is early in the year, but it's still possible to see the show in just a few hours. Try some of the bigger shows if you want to understand how bad a motorshow can be. Don't believe me? Try Frankfurt or Paris, or even the Dutch RAI to see what crowds really look like and understand what blistered feet really feel like.

We went yesterday afternoon and it was a much more pleasurable experience than last year, its laid out a little better. I'm now trying to convince my husband that we really should buy a car with a roof and not a Morgan 3 wheeler

Oh, God! I went last Saturday and i went mad: in total 6 hours journey (by train), far too many people(that thing, i've kind of expected- as it was on weekend) , had to queue for at least 5-8 min in order to see properly a car or to take pics, and also to mention the poor food- (but expensive) we had; arrived there at 11.30 and by 5pm i was exhausted... that atmosphere is really,really tiring. For me, personally it was one of those things which you have to do it only once in life

It was because it was Saturday. I went at 2.30 on a Tuesday. No queues to get in and i could easily squeeze past people to take pictures. It also helps that i live 15minutes by bus from palexpo

Re: Geneva International Motor show 3rd - 13th of March 2011

We had no problems with too many people. Mid week really is the best time to go. We went over the weekend last year and I think I saw the roof of a Aston and the side mirror of a Lamborghini , the rest of the time I was looking at someones back or attempting to avoid being stepped on.

I had the same experience last year and this year did not even think to show up over there... Midweek might be better but some people have to work
