In June Scott spent a week in Geneva, once again stuck in Groundhog-Day negotiations at WIPO.

One morning I took the 1902 side-paddle steamer Suisse up Lac Léman to the old Roman town of Nyon

the Suisse tied up along side the Quai de Mont Blanc the Jet d'Eau in the center of the harbor the Jet d'Eau in the center of the harbor leaving the Suisse at Nyon the Suisse departs Nyon for Montreux


the castle, at the edge of the old town plaza in the old town the Roman ruins & museum in the old town waiting for the slow train back to Geneve

And every day, the endless negotiations and interventions at WIPO on chemain des Colombettes.  (Picture taken in the overflow room, which had a live video feed from the main hall -- Fritz & John can be seen in the background conspiring.)

On the last afternoon, I took the train the length of the Lac to Montreux and strolled along the Lac...

Then Scott flew home to Katherine and Alex & Jeremy, who he had been missing so terribly much!
