Not the band unfortunately :P

Deep Purple's next tour stop is in pretty(?) Geneva. Lets all meet and go for a drink/walk/dinner/whatever. Everybody welcome!

Meeting point: In the stations main hall outside the pharmacy called Amavita. I will be the one with the long hair most likely playing snake on her phone.

Itenary will be fixed on the spot depending on whatever we feel like doing. Most likely around 8-9ish we will end up in Spring Brothers (aka cheapest beer in Geneva) but that all depends.

See you there

Re: Lets meet Deep Purple

Thanks for setting this up. I am beginning to think this trip is becoming something like a Royal tour. I have about a dozen engagements booked in already.

I hope that I don't disappoint!

Re: Lets meet Deep Purple

If you're curious, I could talk a bit about the history of the town after all, when you visit a town, history is always an interesting bit....


I finish my work at 11 am. If someone want to meet me before, you are welcome.

Re: Lets meet Deep Purple

Sounds nice, maybe I'll join.
Just wondering, anything defined about what you are doing? Wondering if this would be dog friendly day? Since I'm on holiday I don't want to leave Teckla all alone...

Would have loved to meet up for some nice cold Magners at the Spring Brothers after work, but I'm in London this week.

You and Tekla would be very welcome. I don't have any particular plans. I guess I will have to take a picture of that big water fountain thing as I a

Re: Lets meet Deep Purple

Hi all,

I'm very, very disappointed, but I have to say that I can't come today. Last night, an old neck injury reared its ugly head once again and has left me pretty paralysed. The earliest I can get a doctor's appointment today is 4:30 and I fear that, even then, he's not really going to be able to do anything for it. Last time it happened this badly, I was bedstriken for 2 weeks. Fingers crossed it gets better much sooner than that, but I certainly don't think it's going to get better by this afternoon.

Sorry once again, I really am upset.

Just got back to Lausanne. Would have stayed longer if I did not have to rush off in the morning. Thanks to all of you for making me so welcome. Hope to see you again before too long. Patsycat, if you make it to Zurich on Thursday I am sure you should be able to find somewhere to stay
