Favourite things...

A trip to Lausanne…

Things I love… No. 4

Here, the legendary Brasserie Bavaria where Bujard et Panchaud (the two characters from Alain Freudiger’s fabulous novel, ‘Bujard et Panchaud ou les Faux-Consommateurs’) meet up on page 20 and discuss their future life in Lausanne;

‘À eux Lausanne, ses cafés, son intense activité artistique et intellectuelle, ses Lausannoises et ses boutiques specialisées….’


Each year Lausanne celebrates young talented dancers by hosting an International Dance Festival with varied works of contemporary choreography. During the event all kinds of used ballet shoes get strewn on washing lines stretched from one end of the street to the other…

– it really is magical!
