The only thing I know about Lake Como is that George Clooney has a house there. I think it was used in the movie "Ocean's eleven." It's the gorgeous place that Andy Garcia's character lives in. When Yun and I got to Como we were not so impressed. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice sleepy little place with nothing much to do. It is quite huge and there are boats that take you to all the different towns. We took a trip to one. Bellagio. That's right, the place that the hotel casino in Vegas is named after. The first thing you notice is that no human being is in the water. In every town not a single person has a bathing suit on. What the hell is going on here. After a few hours I only saw one guy water skiing. I couldn't figure it out. There are no little beach areas for people to swim. Maybe someone can explain the place to me. On our way back to the town of Como, which is where we stayed, our boat broke down. Yun was a bit freaked out. Not me because I had bought a bottle of grappa. It was the perfect time to break that sucker out. Which I did. They finally fixed the boat and we were on our smoky, engine coughing churning way. We were happy to leave as it didn't really blow our minds. I did manage to make a nice little doodle of the place.
