The sun is shining and the skies are clear blue as we head off for the day. First stop is the town of Domodossola; the largest town in the area. After a short walk around the older part of the town we then head back to Piedimulara to visit Gilberto's mother and brother. His brother speaks English a bit but his mum doesn't, however I still understand her when she wants to know if the boots I have on were the ones I wore yesterday to walk up the mountain.
