We landed in Zurich at 10:00 am Swiss time....that translates to 4:00 am in the US. I was so surprised to see all of the colorful leaves on the hillside. Guess I never thought about fall in Europe.
Our second flight took us to Milan,Italy where we boarded a bus for the hour journey to Lake Como. We saw a large campground on the way with tents and small campers all parked close together. It seemed a little out of place until we went a little further and saw a dirt bike race track with moguls and hills manicured for the dozens of bikers. We had passed it before I could pull the camera out. Lesson learned. KEEP the camera handy.
Our hotel is right on the lake. We can look across and see the village of Bellagio. There is a ferry to cross the lake. That is on our to do list.
Time to get a hot bath and a little shut eye. We dine at 7. :).

I wander over for my breakfast at the cafe and catch up on emails etc. After breakfast I walk to the train station to confirm the times for tomorrow. I buy a ticket for the early morning train. Then I head off for the walk ...

She says she will give me an injection, and just before she puts it in, asks if I have any allergies. I reply in the negative and away she goes.
And, after the wait for the local to numb my mouth, she removes the tooth. In fact, the only dramatic thing was the dentist’s chairside assistant getting a sore head because she banged it on the X-Ray ...
... OMG! This is such an impossibly beautiful place. There is a photo op every second. The lake is gorgeous and the mountains are behind it. I'm so glad I came up here. I've pretty much been everywhere in Italy now that I wanted to go. For dinner I had sliced chicken fillet with a Parmesan cheese sauce with a "hint" of truffle and vegies plus the obligatory wine! I couldn't taste the truffle but it was so nice to have some decent meat. Very nice restaurant ...

... which is a small town on our side of the peninsula/lake. We finally found the start of the trail we were hunting for (directions of course were, "Find the church...then face the bus stop... now look left..." Typical Italians.
It was drizzling lightly, but we were in a very covered forest for the first half of the hike, going literally straight up hill! At some points I was using my hands to climb up. We didn't see any other people for ...
