Anyone miss me?
I have been having trouble getting connected to the outside world. At the moment, I/m sitting in a beautiful little village at Lake Como on the terrace of a bar with free wifi. This is the first chance I have had to communicate in three days. We were in a remote valley in the Swiss Alps and our renter house on Lake Como does not have a connection. The USB stick I bought does not work, so you can imagine my frustration at not being able to supply the world with my observations.
I'll keep working on the connection, so I can write in more detail about this adventure. All I can say, is that traveling in Europe can be great.
I knew that the village in the Alps is remote, but have learned the reason Lake Como is so exclusive: it is difficult to reach. That adds to the appeal.
