Woke up to another beautiful day. Hotel Pavillon had been excellent and a great place to relax for the night. Dinner was a 5 course meal with great wine to celebrate harriet's birthday.

Next stop Lavachey, still in Italy but just a small hamlet. -- ...

At the top we ate lunch looking out over the beautiful view. Next, we started ...
... and didn't love that we only ordered 2 courses for lunch, but whatever. The cappuccino of asparagus with crème fraiche was SOUP and it was delicious. I had duck breast with what I can only describe as flat tater tots, so I was more
