It was suffering from poverty so they decided to compensate for its isolation in a little pocket of Italy near Switzerland by making it a tax free zone.

... planning on having a
braai. Not to be since the moment the sun went behind the mountain the
temperature dropped below anything that is possible to braai in. The braai was

the cable car to get to the top of the mountain first.

After a quick shower we drove over to Stef’s house in Chamfer for a home cooked
meal with Stef and her boyfriend Jan.
Then back to the camp for a good night’s sleep.
