Sunday photo: The Christmas market and its context

COVID-19 is on the rise in Switzerland and in the rest of Europe. After a relatively stable summer and autumn, the number of new infections has increased exponentially. This means we will revert to what we have done before: distancing, masks, hygiene. Stay safe by staying away.

Advent is also approaching. In Geneva is it marked by beautiful lights and decorations and Christmas market. This year Jardin Anglais is home to the largest market in the city, taking over from Parc de Bastion. It opened on Thursday last week.

I have admired it from afar but not up close. I took this photo from across the lake. That’s probably distant enough. I’m sure it is also beautiful up close but I like seeing the market in context.
