We went up to the place in the mountains Col de Petit Saint Bernard where you cross from France to Italy. The place was full of mountain bikers and motorcyclists. We went to an Italian cafe just over the border with about 50 Swiss Harley Davidson bikers. They all looked really hip amd wealthy with gleaming new bikes. We went up a chairlift and it was mind dazzlingly beautiful. Joe could hardly look at Mount Blanc because it was so big. We were so high. Mountains everywhere. I felt very happy.
Joe liked the fibreglass customs officer at the border, The kids liked the St Bernard dog models. There was a neolithic stone circle. There is evidence of human occupation for 5000 years at the crossing. Here are many inadequate photos including pictures of Lily doing yoga moves (thanks Cosmic kids) and Abbie on the border stone.
