lute trip to Ticino

this past week the swiss lute players again were on their traditional trip to the Ticino. For me it was a chance to relax and to say goodbye to the summer. In advance I can tell: The weather was marvelous and we had a great time.
The foot was sensational - especially "il paradiso" in Orselina was remarkable but even the Pizza down in Locarno was delicious. We made just a couple of excursions. One to Italy and one to Locarno.
On tuesday we played a concert: actually Juerg and me were playing excerps from our duo-program and later while everybody was chatting I decided I better would play some music - I'm not good in small talk. And as the main topic seemed to be architecture I felt uncomfortable. Later in the evening I had some nice talk to some people of the audience though.

Start was (as always) in Rorschach at Lake Constance. While waiting for Urs I took some fotos at the lake. Grebes are beautiful birds, aren't they?

when we returned from Italy (on wednesday) I took this one. We found a very nice Grappa there. Watch the label!


another one

and a final one (I made a sheer endless amount of fotos of those lizards):

the castle at night (free hand foto). It's said Leonardo da Vinci was involved in the construction. This is my wallpaper at the moment.

I like this one.

All the best
