Tourist Tuesday

Tourist Tuesday wasn't our idea but that of our friends Tracy and Alan. They found an interesting place to go once a week.

 A voodoo ceremony

Stealing their idea, we started this week with a visit to the Musée d'ethnographie in Geneva. The featured exhibition was African religions which brought out the similarities and differences in not just the three major religions (Christianity, Islam and Jewish) but the many tribal practices.

The permanent collection brought us in touch with customs from all over the world.

There are 40 museums in Geneva alone www.geneve.com/en/see-do/museums/ so we have a good number of choices.

Outside Geneva, we want to do the Swiss Museum of Transportation www.verkehrshaus.ch/  in Lucerne which also includes the Hans Erni collection www.verkehrshaus.ch/en/museum/hans-erni-museum.

That will probably require a BnB and turn into Wandering Wednesday.

We plan to do those two museums in October when we won't have Sherlock with us along with The Charlie Chaplain museum www.chaplinsworld.com/en

We may also find places to walk and poke on Tuesdays as well.

So much to look forward to.
