John Waterston – four days in paradise
John Waterston gave a photo presentation of the “four days in gave a photo presentation of the “four days in paradise” that he and his wife spent on Lake Como in April. The lake itself is beautiful, surrounded by high peaks, and the towns around the lake are built into the steep hillsides. They visited several towns on the ferries that ply the length of Lake Como every half hour. The hotel was an eight-minute boat ride from the main town of Como, which is about an hour north of Milan. They had beautiful views up the lake from our hotel room balcony. Bellagio is probably the best-known town on the lake. Its narrow, steep streets are lined with pastel painted shops selling Italian silks and leather bags and small wine bars and coffee houses. They feasted on prosciutto and fresh mozzarella – a local specialty.
