Christmasy Carouge

One of my favorite neighborhoods in Geneva is Carouge.   It just has a beautiful feel to it, with an influence of Mediterranean in its architecture and its many artisans for residents.  In fact, you can often see them working away in their shops, making everything from hand.

As December arrives, Carouge dresses up in the finest Christmas decorations to show its spirit, and also make its lovely shops inviting.  Last week, my photo group met up for a drink and to take some photos of this great neighborhood.   Here are some of mine:


The moon and the Christmas tree


An example of the lovely storefronts


Frosty leading the way


Many have beautiful garland like this

And also there are the Santas!  Every shop has one, but they are slightly different in dress.




Some are even themed to their shop!

Merry Christmas!!
