|And so we end as we began, with the Mille Miglia.|
Sirmione, where we are now, has an ongoing festival to
the original 1947-57 MM, the real Heros, as they zoomed
around the 1,000 mile open roads at speeds up to 290kph
|Lunch by the lake in Sermione, John tucked behind the flowers|
|There's simple beauty everywhere|
in Sirmione, indeed in Italy...
|... simple beauty, like this, Lago di Garda|
|And our current version of the Mille Miglia, a Regulated Time Trial|
a bit like this, a kids' game compared with the Heroes. Still, takes
some getting 61+ year old cars around Italy's rutted back roads...
|Hotel Sirmione, our pub there.|
|Damiano takes us out on a sunset cruise|
on a Bertoldi boat
|John, me and Jing. In front of the Roman Villa at Sirmione. |
It was 200 metres by 100 metres, 2,000 years ago...
|Sunset on Lago di Garda|
|Mirror with Damiano and our crew|
|The Sermione castle, only one in the world (or Italy?) with its own|
port inside the grounds
|and so to bed...|
