Ambiente acolhedor e simpático. Café da manhã simples, mas servido em um terraço bonito. Todo mundo ali parece feliz, hóspedes em suas motos ou nos seus carros que lembram a época de Scott Fitzgerald na Côte d'Azur. Charme, naturalmente.

We stroll into Isola ready for our packed lunch and a grocery shop, except Isola is a town square, fountain, free wi-fi, a restaurant and a small tobacco shop that may or may not be open.

We roll into Saint-Benoît, which turns out to be an ancient roadside mid-evil town that had been built in the ...
... talk. "Will you get a f**king move on? We will be here all f**king day". Surprisingly this doesn't increase my tempo and after some shared jovial expletives we crawl up the horrible, pebbly tarmac in snail formation. Aussies Bruce and Mick are already outside the hotel and give us a pat on the back as even they had found the day so tiring they didn't try the extra col. Richie makes it up d'Izouard. Total respect.
... a mobile milking setup for 4 cows at a time , which can be moved around the mountain depending on where the cows are grazing. An incredible sight to see! & hear with the cows wearing bells to locate them. We have met the cheese maker & look forward to making cheese with the fresh milk tomorrow A dinner at the refuge of gnocchi & Castel Magno cheese, guinea fowl & some lovely wines ended what was a fascinating day. Looking forward to ...
