On Saturday we took a quick trip to Como, which is very close to Milan and on the southern edge of Lake Como. It was overcast and foggy, so there weren't a lot of great photos to be had. But it still was fun.
On the train up, Laura asked whether we were going to go fishing. I'm not sure where she got that idea -- it's not like she's ever been fishing -- but we did see these guys.
We took the funicular to Brunate, which is a little way up the mountainside. The entrance to the funicular is cool, and we had a decent lunch up top. But we'll probably skip this on future trips because the waiting in line just wasn't worth it. Kevin did have an interesting view on the way back down, though.
The Volta Temple was on the 10,000 lira note before Italy switched to the euro. Not that I've ever seen a 10,000 lira note. The building is named for Alessandro Volta, the Italian physicist whose work led to the creation of the electric battery. Now you know where volts got their name.
I'm all about educating people, you know.
