europe part 1: finally!

we left from MSP on Friday Sept 2nd, landing in Amsterdam at 5:30ish their time.
the flight really wasn't that bad, considering we were on a more updated plane
and each seat had their own TV screen on the headrest in front of them.
i watched Midnight in Paris, Limitless, and Something Borrowed
which completely made the 8+ hour flight fly by... get it?? fly by?? yeeeah...
we had a 3 hour layover in Amsterdam before leaving to Geneva, Switzerland
so we hung out at this cool restaurant in the airport that i wish i had gotten a picture of.
naturally we ordered beers, wine, and a spicy bloody mary
by this time i think that we were all a little tired... doesn't he make tired look super sexxxy??
once in Geneva, we hopped on the train that would take us around the lake to Lausanne
after everyone (except my dad of course) was well rested from our 4 hour naps
we headed to the cafe across the street from our hotel
the pick thin woman stretching behind kevan and my mom was our waitress
...who we never saw. it's actually amazing she ended up in this picture.
sidenote: a never noticed how much my mom and kevan look alike until this picture...
i guess instead of marrying my father, i'm marrying dating my mother.
they're personalities are even creepily similar... wow.
we walked around Lausanne for a while that night, finally ending at
wait for it...
Le Chinese Dynasty.
yep. traveled for 15 hours to eat at a Chinese restaurant.
it was raining and we just ran in to get out of the storm, but it was like fate.
it was on the second story, so we had a perfect view of the town, Lake Geneva, and the Alps
(you can see to the left of my dad in the above picture)
and the food was out of this world.
i had beef curry that i'm still drooling/dreaming about
and kevan had some duck thing that was crazy good.
That's it for day 1!

time to go take my take home accounting test---blargf--- wish me luck!
