Cheers! At the foot of the Botto waterfall, you raise a toast to getting together.
The fresh air, the sun's warmth, and your dearest friend are just what you need to recharge your batteries. You and Claudia don't see each other very often but going to visit her in Ticino is always a pleasure. Friends from childhood, you have shared many moments of discovery.
Summer has just ended and your children, Edoardo and Camilla, have recently gone back to school. September is your favourite month: the myriad colours, the chirping of the birds, the gentle warmth of the sun, and the days that are still long enough to enjoy all the hours of sunlight nature gives you.
After the short walk from Rovio to the Botto waterfall, a trick of the light conjures a rainbow as a wonderful backdrop to your restorative break. What better way to recharge your batteries than to immerse yourself in nature? Small droplets of water refresh you as you read a book you have been wanting to finish for ages, set in Rovio itself, by the 1912 Nobel prizewinner Gerhart Hauptmann. 5, 10, 20 pages later, your throat is dry... it's time to enjoy a refreshing, sparkling drink.
