I don't know Lake Garda, but I have spent some absolutely wonderful days on Lake Como just west of there while commuting to work northwest of Milan.  It was a long drive to work and back every day, but worth every minute of it with great wine, delicious food, friendly locals and beautiful women, just this side of heaven.

Heard a lot about Lake Como being a beautiful area. My visits to Italy were strictly coastal on a 14 day return trip cruise from Southampton port (south end of England) stopping in various ports in Portugal, Spain, Italy and France. In Italy it was Civitavechhia and a 1 hour train ride to Rome and another stop to visit the leaning Tower of Pisa. The Tower was a lot taller than I had visualized from physics books in high school. And is built with beautiful white marble. We also liked Barcelona with the amazing Temple of Gaudi and Olympic village. We loved the Nice, Monte Carlo and Monaco area. I would not mind living there but very expensive cost of living LOL. Always loved French women speak...so charming. Our tour guide pointed out to this magnificent villa built on a little peninsula jutting out in the Mediterranean sea. She added, it was valued at $200 million, and a Russian buyer came forward. The owner did not want to sell to a Russian, preferring perhaps a French buyer. So the owner jacked the price to $500 million for the Russian. Guess what the Russian accepted!. In Portugal, we toured to Cintra near Lisbon, which has summer palace of Portuguese kings, and it was where Vasco Da Gama was awarded the commission to sail the world.

 

In future I would not sail from Southampton. The weather was crappy for a day out of there until the ship arrived on coastal Portugal. Best port to sail from is Civitavechhia or Barcelona. Then you can tour Greece as well and avoid the rainy and cold weather in UK.

20,000 Berliners gather to proclaim a "day of freedom" from virus curbs.

 

Since it is a protest, there is zero chance of spreading any virus. ;-)

Crowds are the fastest way to build herd immunity in the crowd and soon afterwards virus runs out of infectable hosts. That crowd is young and energetic looking.  They will not end up on ventilators. Old obese people with diabetes usually avoid protest crowds.

Crowds are the fastest way to cull the herd.

 

Just think how much money New York will save by clearing out the state ran nursing homes.

No doubt that the Social Security systems of the world will benefit too.

 

cull the herd. 1. Literally, to separate or remove (and usually kill) inferior animals out of a herd so as to reduce numbers or remove undesirable traits from the group as a whole.

a view from above..........a view of a piece of the Cisalpine Republic of Northern italy as it was in the plans 150 years ago, before a couple of idiots took the decision of annexing rome and the south......worst decision ever.

As for the bikinis, a few time ago so many girls used to take the sun in topless, now those in topless are rare
