You will never guess where I am now…Geneva, Switzerland! The fountain in the middle of Lake Geneva is one of the first things that I saw here. Can you guess how high it goes?
The fountain, the Jet d’Eau (“Water Jet”), soars to an amazing height of 140 meters (460 feet) at a rate of 500 liters (130 US gallons) per second. The water exits the base nozzle at a rate of 200 km/hour (120 mph). That is quite impressive!
Let’s take another look…
I sure wish I could take a boat out to see that fountain!
