Hi Everyone:

      Laura and I are privileged to be spending our 5th anniversary at this incredibly beautifiul place. Today we had a "restful" day strolling around the town of Varenna which is a beautiful town, and also touring the gardens of the Villa Monastero which is near our hotel. I put restful in quotes because basically we never really rest, so that right now in the late afternoon, we are quite tired. Tonight we will dine on the outdoor patio of our hotel overlooking the lake. It is in the 70's here during the day and low 60's, I think, at night. The weather is perfect. Tomorrow our friends Luca and Mary will be spending the day with us. I am not sure where or if they are staying overnight, but they will arrive between 10 and 12 and we will probably spend the day ferrying the lake and seeing a villa. I then made reservations for the four us at a lakeside place for dinner, Vecchia Varenna. Sunday we will be staying here another day. Instead of staying near the airport, we have, as previously mentioned, turned in the car and will take a taxi to Malpensa Monday morning very early. That gives us a whole day here. They cannot give us our same room, but they have instead assigned us a lovely room with similar views. Sunday we will probably ferry the lake again.

    See you all soon.

     Love
