Buon Giorno

Here's an update from the Italian Alps. Staying in the Albergo Monte Bondone at 1300m for 4 days. We look out over the valley and across to more mountains and so far the weather has stayed sunny, although it's a little cool in the mornings or when the sun goes behind a cloud. Yesterday we went swimming in a lake where you could lie on your back and look up at the surrounding mountains. Today we went for a walk by the alpine meadows - the coolness makes it ideal walking country. Tonight we're off to see the opera Aida in the Verona amphitheatre.

For those who like to hear about the food, it's been great so far. Probably won't update again until I get back to England, which will be late on Tuesday night.
