Geneva Warning · There were 120 del­e­gates in Gene­va for a week for the BRM, and two of them were mugged. One fel­low got a frac­tured jaw and a wom­an had her purse grabbed. This is not ex­act­ly the im­age one has of Switzer­land. Who knows, maybe it’s just a sta­tis­ti­cal fluke. Maybe ISO del­e­gates look like soft tar­get­s. But if I were go­ing to be in Geneva, I’d watch where I walked and be care­ful about be­ing alone.

Geneva Advice · Dear LazyWe­b: I’m go­ing to be in Gene­va the week of Fe­bru­ary 25th at­tend­ing that ISO meet­ing. The ho­tels seem most­ly sold out and what’s left is 300CHF and up. I hear that there are ap­peal­ing places across the bor­der in France and that tran­sit is straight­for­ward. Would any­one have good ad­vice on the mat­ter?
[Next day]: Dear LazyWe­b, thank you. Owen’s sug­ges­tion that I check out Ho­tel­srus.­com got me a de­cent rate at Hôtel-les-Nations, which is a nice-looking place.
