Our man [formally] of Amsterdam

We came down from the mountain through the forest, while the light was all right, and there was much snow still on the ground, which squeaked loudly under our feet. It was warmer among the trees than up high when exposed to the wind on the ridge, and pine branches drooped under the weight of melting icicles, drip, drip, drip.

When we came down the mountain to the lake, the boat was approaching the wharf and the honey-hued villas on the eastern shore near Bellagio shone golden in the late afternoon sun, but now the wind was much stronger on the water, and  it was colder than Antarctica when we finally berthed at Como’s Piazza. I’ve checked into heaven; catch you later.
