... bottled water is very cheap there. While travelling, to brush my teeth, I did use the tap water and was careful not to swallow any of it. For drinking, I always bought bottled water. We dont really think about it here, we are thirsty, and we will drink the water out of the tap or out of a fountain. The water in developing countries can be fairly contaminated but people there, some do not have the choice but to drink it.

Day 274 1 hr, 1 km With the steep, wooded mountainside to my left and a valley that is quickly narrowing to my right it's only a few hundred meters and I'm in the next town, Messe. I know that the uphill climb is getting close, including my big goal: to cross the Splugenpass from Italy to Switzerland on foot. I know it was just planted here for the warm months, but seeing a banana tree in someone's yard just feels really unappropriate. C'mon folks, this is the ...

It sound like there's a much higher waterfall up a bend in a slit like gorge--but I ...
Day 273 5 hrs, 10.4 kms Day Totals: 16 hrs, 37.4 kms I take a little detour to snag one more town today. As I wander through this frazione of Samolaco, a husky older gentleman greets me from outside his barn, my third interesting encounter of the day. He tells me about his life... growing up in the mountains here, spending much of his life out in the plains working, and now coming back to his home village. I guess that's the reality of these ...
... no trucks speeding through on elevated roads, just farmland... giving it a more pure, untarnished feel. It's still hours before nightfall, but the mountains have already blocked out the sun--except far ahead where rays of light stream through gaps in the mountains, lighting up a castle perched high up on a peak. I'm definitely feeling the magic of the Alps ...
