After posting photos of Geneva on Sunday afternoon, I wandered around a bit more in the dark to get some photos by night. The big tall waterspout thing I had seen in the day turned out to be illuminated at night, which made for an interesting scene. I could also see Cathédrale Saint-Pierre across Lake Geneva in the old part of the city.
Once that was accomplished, I wandered back over to the youth hostel and got a little bit of sleep, then my friend Gaëlle at CERN gave me a ride to the Geneva airport in her 1986 BMW 316 at 5:30 AM for my 7:00 AM flight out. Thanks, Gaëlle!
The flight from Geneva to Amsterdam was uneventful. I slept a good portion of it. I also slept some on the flight from Amsterdam to San Francisco, since I had already seen two of the three movies they showed. We got great aerial views of Iceland and the Bay Area, including the Golden Gate Bridge.

I ended up having dinner at Triple Rock in Berkeley with some friends I was visiting - had a very yummy hamburger and some fries and lemonade.
