This morning we woke up in Locarno, Switzerland, on the north shore of Lake Maggiore. We’d planned to hang around Locarno until 1:00, then catch the autostrada to Milan and drop off Mito. But we’re not so good at following our own plans these days.

We left Venice on Monday morning. The hotel has a back door that opens directly onto a canal. We walked out that door and embarked onto a water taxi. (That makes the fourth boat we’ve ridden on this trip.) The taxi ride was great fun. We stood up in the back and gawked like the tourists that we are. I have a video for eventual upload. The taxi took us to Piazzale Roma, where we picked up our rental car.

We’re in Desenzano del Garda, and our hotel has no Internet access. So updates will be sparse for a couple of days. Right now, we’re sitting in a lavanderia (laundromat) and squatting on an unsecured Wi-Fi network.
I am aquiver with anticipation of wearing machine-washed clothes again.
