    Day 21. Como, Italy.

    August 25, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Lake Como also known as Lario is located at the foot of the Swiss Alps against the Swiss border. It’s inverted Y shape was carved out of the mountains by a glacier.
    A quiet day today. Unfortunately I am quite sick with some vomiting and diarrhoea and strong headache and stomach cramps. I may have food poisoning I think from the joghurt in Jordan.
    We have a lovely room in Como, Residence Diaz, in Via Armando Diaz. Ron battled with the washing machine which had a lowest setting of 3 hours, while I rested. Unfortunately Ron also became ill later in the day.
    We walked along the lake this morning. Beautiful houses, boats and stunning crystal waters. Lots of buskers and artists along the esplanade walk. Gelati and pizza shops and bars with snack meals and pasta restaurants everywhere. Also never ending fashion, shoes, beauty product stores. White glittery sandshoes are definitely in.
