... my mum worked for 6 months when she was a little older than me. We went back to their house for a beautiful cooked lunch followed by dessert of cherries and cream! Afterwards Dario and Claudia took us up to our family house in the mountains- the equivalent of a Bach in NZ 'Cansume'. It was just as I remembered it- so beautiful. We walked around for a while and the view is just incredible! Ilaria picked us up in the afternoon and we went ...
... got to Poschiavo - the town where Char's family is from, Dario took us for a walk around the town. Here we visited different places and Char was introduced to different people around town who all knew who she was haha. We visited the church where we were told a really cool story.

In fact the chef/owners wife is a Crameri!......”le sigh”. I feel like I'm a spectator in a very weird wonderland.
