Departing Geneva

 Geneva is a city that has much to offer to travellers, so I tried to fit in as much as I could into the three days I had before leaving.  I learnt about some of the history of Old Geneva, particularly its important role in the Reformation through the likes of Martin Luther and John Calvin.  Its bohemian district Carouge had plenty of patisseries and cafes for me to eat at, and was only a short train ride from the city centre.  Also, there was an exhibition about the pharaoh Tutankhamen in town which included exact replicas of his entire tomb and the possessions within it.  Before I knew it I was on my way to the airport for my flight back home.  I had a truly wonderful time in Switzerland and learnt a lot about the main issues and topics in international trade circles.  I want to thank AYLI for selecting me to attend the 2013 WTO Public Forum and for all their help in organising what was a fantastic experience.  Also I want to thank Fonterra who generously sponsored me to attend the forum, as without them none of this would have been possible.
