Weekly Photo: Giant Chess In Geneva

Giant Chess in Bastions Park Geneva Switzerland1

The Promenade des Bations in Geneva, Switzerland used to be a botanical garden, but now it is a park full of statues of important figures and event in Swiss history.  We stopped to watch a game of chess, giant chess, but were way to intimidated to consider joining in.  Although one of the spectators was friendly enough to invite us, everyone else was enthralled, ignoring the two American girls looking on.  I got to say I am curious what they do with the chess pieces at the end of the day.  I wouldn’t be surprised if they leave them there.  I felt a sense of safety in all of Switzerland, where everything seemed to run effortlessly and with almost too perfect precision.  Leaving something out in the open would never fly in Washington Square Park, another popular chess spot, where some privileged fellow would certainly snag them.
