Day Five in the Mountain

Dantercepies, Selva Val Gardena, Italy

Standing on the plains, hoary wisps float about, almost solid enough to touch.cold bites in and a cafe offers welcome refuge.

We are surrounded by white. Varying shades push in at the glass windows. Clouds shift, revealing a mass of craggy mountain peaks.  A stout little marmot sits on a rock, only a little bigger than him. snow finch and alpine chuff sweep in and out sight, black wings stark against the grey and white

There’s a strange kind of peace about me as Monty Pythons Always Look on the Bright Side of Life plays overhead and a fine cup of hot chocolate warms me.

After wandering the winding streets of Selva looking for an open  pizzeria, Tom and I went back to the hotel and googled it. I am now sipping on a Hugo cocktail at a fantastic restaurant, having thoroughly stuffed ourselves with huge pizzas.
