bits of Moldova
and a lonely horse…don’t know who’s the owner, but it was tied to the cemetery fence. i was told it is very old.
it seemed very kind…came to me and somehow asked for affection…and i petting it a bit.

weekend in & around Lugano: Monte San Salvatore and hiking
our group was very diverse… age-wise, from 22 to more than 35, nationality-wise, from China, India, Australia to many in Europe to Cuba and others :) and physical training-wise.
we took the funicular to go up on Monte San Salvatore…it is a very steep funicular way. i’m glad we didn’t go hiking up the hill :)
on Mount San Salvatore we had lunch, as almost a picnic. looked around - beautiful! as seen also in the first post. it was partially cloudy, thus the colours are not very bright…but this partially cloudy was very helpful during the upcoming hike.
then we started out a bit more than 4 hours hike. it was mostly downhill, sometimes pretty steep, most of the times the path was very rocky, with sharp edges sticking out of the ground, which was not very good for me as i wore simple walking shoes, with thin sole.
anyway, during the hike i was alright…it’s only now, after almost 2 days, that i can barely move, my muscles feel clenched.
the pick on the left is mount san salvatore…we were lessthan half way.
we past through a very small village
then again deep woods
and some private property :)
and lovely horses, very friendly
(seems like the camera lens was dirty)
and finally we reached Morcote
still, lots of stairs ahead… some photos of the village in another post.
