2006 Trip - Italy - Lake Como - Our Last Day

Monday 5-22-06

After visiting Villa Melzi in Bellagio, we took a gelato-caffe-wine break to wait for the ferry back to Lenno from Bellagio. Sat at a table outside on the lakefront and watched the boats (and the world) go by.

On our way back to Lenno, we saw some beautiful scenery.

Back to Albergo Plinio for dinner, where we met Tanya on our first night. She helped us pick a local Lakes wine, Valtelina Superiore, called Inferno, 1998 Balgera. Also each had a glass of Prosecco before dinner.

Primi for me was tortolini with spinach and ricotta, with sage and butter. Bill's was spaghetti with pesto. His was good but mine was outstanding! For his entree, Bill chose a fillet with green peppercorn sauce, and I picked breaded local perch with risotto. An order of french fries too. No dolci tonight - we were just too stuffed. Total bill was 63E.

You may be wondering about all of the food descriptions I have been giving. Guess I am my Mother's daughter - we don't eat to live - we live to eat!

We have had good internet access so far on our trip, but that may be changing when we get to Tuscany. Here is where I checked my emails on the lobby computer at Albergo Lenno.

Palma:

It is just so relaxing at the lake, isn't it?
I could stare at that view for hours with a bottle of wine! (or coffee)

Tortolini with spinach and ricotta, with sage and butter...one of my favorites! Now I know just where Lenno is. I recognize the ferry shot.
