Double Rainbows in Geneva

Bruce and I are back in Geneva, Switzerland working with U of M Flint's Global Program. We were lucky enough to go through the first program. Now the second cohort is graduating and we are back to help with graduation (video/photography and general planning.)

It has been a lot of fun - because we met the new cohort last year - and this year we got to see the result of all of their hard work with their projects. It's interesting how the same program can result in such diversity among projects from the first group to the second and even among groups.

Today we introduced the group to the double rainbow video and song on youtube. If you haven't seen it - I embedded both below. And then tonight in Geneva a down pour came through just around dusk and you would never believe it - a double rainbow. Coincidence, I think not.

Tomorrow, Bruce and I will run 10 miles in Geneva for marathon training. We might also go to the farmers market across the border into France (if it isn't pouring rain.) However, I am not complaining about the rain - when we got here it was in the high 80's - today was a high of low 70's. Much more comfortable - especially when staying in a place without air conditioning.

On Sunday we leave Geneva for a week of travels. Our duties here have been split - so we are able to enjoy some traveling before getting back to work. On Sunday, we fly to Budapest, Hungry. I am very excited, because it is some place completely new for both of us. Many of our travels have been places one of us has been before and we want to share it with the other person. Hungry is totally new.

It's been a great summer of travel. I am still enjoying the memories of Prince Edward Island and my new love for Poutine. Now we are having totally different experiences on the other side of the pond.

¿Por qué cierran con llave los baños de las gasolineras, acaso tienen miedo de que la gente los limpie?

Si los sándwich de miga son simples porque tienen una capa de relleno, ¿los triples no deberían ser dobles?

¿Un guirigay es un extranjero marica?

Cuando un abogado se vuelve loco, ¿pierde el juicio?

Si homicidio es matar a un hombre, suicidio... ¿es matar a un suizo?

Si una palabra está mal escrita en el diccionario, ¿cómo lo sabríamos?

En el caso de que haya más allá, ¿habrá menos acá?

Si los fabricantes de carteles y pancartas hacen una huelga, ¿hay algo escrito en sus carteles?

¿Por qué las cosas siempre se encuentran en el último lugar donde se las busca?

¿A quién le preguntan los guardias cuando se pierden?

Si un policía arresta a un mimo, ¿debe decirle que tiene derecho a permanecer en silencio?

¿Por qué cuando nos cuelgan el teléfono nos quedamos mirándolo como si él tuviera la culpa?

¿Qué deben decir las patatas cuando les hacen una foto?

¿Por qué lo importante no es saber, sino tener el teléfono del que sabe?

Si en vida fueras masoquista, ¿No sería una recompensa ir al infierno y un castigo ir al cielo?

¿Por qué cuando nos llaman al móvil sentimos la necesidad irrefrenable de ponernos a andar de un lado a otro?

¿Por qué si nunca usamos las páginas amarillas, cuando las ves en el portal piensas en cogerlas todas?

¿Es cierto que la verdad absoluta no existe?
Si te quieres divertir un rato pásate por
Que pase un buen día!!
