Ciao Bello,

We have finally hit a day of rain...so we thought we should stop off at the nearest internet site to say hello.  We have visited a few of our neighboring communities in the last few days.  Varenna, which claims to be the diamond of the lake, while Bellagio is only the pearl of the lake.  No George Clooney sightings.  Varenna is a cute and quiet town with steep hillsides and walkways.  Bellagio is also very quaint with beautiful villas.   We walked the gardens of the Melza Villa.  The canons in the photos are not toys....they are from the Napoleonic period...used to defeat Milan.  The keys are to the city of Milan from the 1700's. 

The food here is terrific.  We travel back to Milan tomorrow to pick up our friends and head to the villa in Montanione.  Forecast is for thunderstorms...yeah!

Love,
Rich and Kara

Glad you both are having a fun trip. We have also enjoyed France and Italy and

hope you have a safe trip back. We and Carl are getting ready for the 6:00

service and will miss you. Love and God's blessings.
