These photos fell victim to a processing error, but I still dig 'em. The bottom one is so surreal, when I first saw the scan it took me a minute to figure out what I was looking at. The sky was so dark and stormy when I shot it, but not quite like that ;)
We had planned on staying in Bern (where the Lantz family hails from) for 2 nights and then started looking into hotels. The most affordable option we could find was $141 per night, for a bunk bed. In a room with 6 strangers...not quite what we had in mind. Still, we made a point to spend the afternoon in Bern, which was beautiful and decadent in a way I've never seen before - yes, that is fur draped on the chairs outside the cafe, where cappuccinos were $8. After taking in some sights, picking up a brick of swiss cheese and a bag of chocolates, we hightailed it to Pinasca, Italy.
