Tonight was the Notte Bianca (white night) festival in Como. Let it not be said that they don't know how to party. Unfortunately I had to be up at 6 to get my flight home. I managed to get some sleep around 2.30 but was awoken by bed-rattling fireworks half an hour later. Still it was a lot of fun, and I have enjoyed Como - I think I'll come back with my family when I don't have any of that work stuff to do (although maybe I won't stay on the main square during festival night next time).
Houses in Como remind me of children trying to peak over each others shoulders in order to gain a better view of a playground fight.
