Hi Mom, Geneva is great. Lots of people with funny accents gesturing wildly toward shiny new cars, with tall women in slinky outfits standing guard to make sure no one steals them. Our laptop won't charge all the way, so we've been kind of flipping out — something to do with the electricity here (it's produced by agitated eels, not powerplants like other places). We'll try not to blow ourselves up. We're taking lots of photos and will show you when we can get our camera to stop making all that smoke and smelling weird.
See you soon.
[As an aside, if anyone knows why an iBook might stop charging midway, while the light on the AC adapter plug flashes green, send support to firstname.lastname@example.org - Thanks!]
