Knock, knock? Um, ahem, hello? Lausanne, are you there?

With the third phase of “deconfinement” official underway, we’re seeing the city come to life. If you ignore the 2m markers on the ground and the bottles of sanitizer at the entrance of every store, it almost feels normal-ish.

We know that each person will determine for themselves what level of precaution to take when entering back into our common life, but for those who are ready, we wanted to resume our round up of events to give you ideas for how to spend your free time this week.

Unsurprisingly, the city remains quiet. The usual buzz of early summer isn’t felt in private events just yet. But restaurants are open and aching for your business; the parks are verdant; and the views as beautiful as ever. We’ve gathered a couple of mostly virtual events to share as well as reminders about art exhibits that are open from this week.

Be safe. Stay healthy. And enjoy life. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
