Bonjour! This week’s carte postale features Lake Geneva (Lac Léman), located north of the Alps between France and Switzerland.

My friend from Canada, whom I met while we were volunteering in Hérisson, France, sent me this lovely postcard last week!

The lake has three names: Lake Geneva (English), Lac Léman (French), and Genfersee (German).

According to Guinness World Records, the annual Tour du Léman à l’Aviron is the longest rowing race in the world covering 99 miles/ 159 km around the circumference of the lake.

Until the next Wednesday Postcard, à bientôt!
