Just a Glimpse

a small ladies room in a beautiful restaurant on Lake Como,
everything rococo, soft Italian music piped inside the room,
just enough to cover the "bathroom" noises, which is a very nice touch
for an old building.

the tassel is the detail I loved the most,
well right after the beautiful basin, the mirror, 
& the antique linens laid out for the use of their patrons.

a lovely woman went inside after each use to replenish & freshen,
such a nice touch which I think we've lost in the USA..

there is absolutely no reason to be inside when you're in this
part of the world, unless it's evening and you're having dinner inside.

the weather is gorgeous right now, and the views are breathtaking.

we met a large Irish wedding party last night,
they said it's so inexpensive for them to come to Italy that it's a major 
destination spot for weddings.

the ceremony will be outside, and they invited all of us to come.
unfortunately, we cannot, dammit !
