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.
