We all love to gather for a snowball fight and not only kids! On the 16th of December, IE alumni and their families enjoyed a Sunday brunch at “Le Pyramus”, the Jardin Botanique restaurant in Geneva. Kids from 4 months to 12 years old had fun doing a variety of activities outside in the kid’s park or in the mini-zoo. In addition to the animals found in traditional parks, such as deer, peacocks and flamingos, IE alumni children discovered ancient races of indigenous and often endangered animals. Actually, the “Jardin botanique” of Geneva raises chickens, goats and sheep for a National Safeguard Program in collaboration with the Foundation ProSpecieRara.
Luckily for all of us, the brunch consisted of a buffet ranging from fish to chicken. Croissant lovers were able to feast on a fine selection of specialties during the meal, allowing children to eat at their own pace and parents to have lunch inside whilst other parents were busy looking after the children in the kid’s park. We also had buffet delicacies including soup, salads, cold cuts, cheese, fruit juice, salad and desserts.
We would like to thank the 32 participants and the restaurant “Le Pyramus”, who proposed the Sunday brunch buffet, which became a delightful gathering between IE alumni and their families. Brunch is priced at CHF 28 per person and CHF 12 for children and is available every weekend and public holiday from 11:30 pm to 1430 pm.
We chose the brunch after 3 years of having dinner  in Hotel Metropole. The attendees expressed their desire to repeat the experience in the first semester of 2013.
