Further along the north shore of Lake Geneva, the city of Lausanne stands in sharp contrast to Geneva. Although prices were no less steep, the city was bustling with pedestrians. A lunch time conversation with a local confirmed the obvious, Lausanne boasts a diverse and vibrant population.

Lausanne is constructed on a series of terraces with sharp elevation changes. It's easy to become disoriented and exhausted walking up and down the streets. The exercise required by pedestrians parallels the city's proud disticntion of housing the permanent home of the International Olympic Committee.

Sadly, we only had time to grab lunch in Lausanne. View more photos of Lausanne on Flickr.
