the famous hiding wall in old Geneva

this is the wall that they only open at Christmas to celebrate the Esclade, it is very narrow and feels medieval, all done with stones, the celebration honors the lady who poured soup and the pot to stop the French from conquering the swiss troupes, there are parades and fife and drums and costumes, it is the biggest celebration in Europe and we happened to run into it after we were trying to sing Noel carols in the street
