When I arrived in Lugano it was already arranged that my friends neighbour came to get me at the train station. We loaded the bike into the car, and shortly after a storm was over Lugano. We drove up the hill to Astano where I was taken in by my friend Aranda. I ended up hiking and relaxing there for a few days. Thank you to all of you for your help and kindness!
I continued my journey down the hill to Ponte Tresa where Zora and I embarked the boat to Brusino. From there I biked across the border of Italy in direction Como.
Going along a little river I drove past a woman with her little dog. I startled as I realised that this dog was attacking my foot. Luckily I was wearing good walking shoes, through which I didn’t feel anything. This has never happened to me before and hopefully will never again. 😉
