With this last post, our trip to Italy has come to an end. We have spent these last few days practicing several indispensable tourist activities: testing the ice cold lake water, to wriggle between other sunbathers on the packed beach right after, exuberant eating and drinking, reading novels, and sauntering between prullaria shops.
Fortuitously, one of our last evenings here was upgraded by fireworks over an already moonlit Lake Garda. This outlying location gave the fireworks show an extra notch. With each firework rocket, the pitch dark beach was illuminated for a few seconds. With each bang, the sound echoed over the mountains, making the water ripple to strand in the pebble beach eventually.
