La Ville de Lausanne

You don't go to Lausanne to have fun, you go to Lausanne to have a moment for yourself.

Though the city is littered with glitzy shops and tourist restaurants just like every other major tourist spot, once you start walking it's really about the cobble stone roads that take their time to journey up and down the hills.

Spilling their secrets by opening up to a river bank with breathtaking view, or revealing a secret cliff where La Cathedrale Lausanne has been standing since the Middle Ages. All the while taking you along in quietude where the concept of time is blurred by the context that surrounds you. And maybe if you pay just enough attention, you may even catch a glimpse of time stopping for a moment, however brief especially when you find yourself along the cobble stone road with nothing but the sky above you.

There are other moments when you witness the passing of time trapped in landmarks like the old Le Palais de Rumine. It is also the Biblioteque Cantonale building where students from nearby Universit√© de Lausanne come to lounge and study in Florentine Renaissance style alcoves, while sitting in front of their Apple computers.

Then you take a moment for yourself to discover the music that floats through the crowd, the texture of the cobble stone roads, and the surrounding buildings made out of stones and wood that have been standing probably since the founding of the city.

 Then and then the question is, where are you in the midst?

When the clock strikes Noon.
