Back from Vacation

I just returned from a vacation to the Lake Como region of Italy. An incredibly beautiful place. We stayed in the small town of Griante on the west side of the lake. The town has about 700 residents and 800 hotel rooms. Most of the tourists were Germans and British, I doubt I heard an American accent there.

An incredibly beautiful region where the mountains seem to sprout up from the shore of the lake. The lake had been surrounded by the villas of the wealthy,

plus hotels and houses for the rest of us.

The towns, such as Bellagio (the famous tourist center) hug the hills along the shore.

The easiest way around was by boat. The kids loved it, being able to eat pasta for every meal.
