We saw surprisingly few birds on the lake by Stresa. Here in Cannero Riviera there are a lot more and many species. Some are rather tame, like the mallard duck which wandered up to us and stared as we were drinking. Our drink was an Aperol Sprizz, a drink of prosecco and Aperol, a herbacious liqueur. We’ve seen so many people drink these that we had to try one.
