Winter 2004-2005

as life's hectic non-stop party threatens to get out of control and really exhausting


Kristin's April 2005 visit to Switzerland (and Italy)

You may not find this terribly rewarding unless you're included here, so this is a good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.

Cannobio and the Orrido di S. Anna

We're in Cannobio, Italy, walking about awaiting our dinner and looking for something to occupy our time, so the Orrido di S. Anna leaps to mind.

Saint Anna's "Horrible Place" is just a brief hike out of Cannobio up into the Valle Cannobina along a nicely groomed path a bit crowded with joggers at the end of the day. The church is medieval and the bridge is said to be Romanesque.
