I was hunting through folders of old pictures tonight and came across some pictures that I took at Lake Como. The pictures in this post were all taken with an old digital camera that saved the images on a floppy disk.
Lake Como is in Italy near the border with Switzerland. It is also just north of Milan where I was conducting a training course in December 2001. On the weekend between courses the service manager took me to see Lake Como.Lake Como is considered to be one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. Unfortunately, I visited in the winter time when it is not as colorful.
When we arrived at the lake we took a ferry to the opposite side.
The ferry was mostly empty, so I guess visiting in winter when there are few tourists did have an advantage.
Here you can see the colorful houses along the shore. It is interesting the way they are built on the hill coming down to the shore. There are some very steep sidewalks going up to the houses on the hill.
I may have to visit Lake Como again someday now that I am reliving memories of my long ago trip.
