Contrasts in Piedmont

This is the season of contrasts… High up in the mountains you´ll still find a lot of snow, while in the lowland the sun is shining and it almost seems like summer.

Last weekend was just like this. Friday was just that sunny day we´ve all been waiting for so long. We´ve had a lot of rain and snow and grey sky, which is a bit unusual in Piedmont this time of the year. So I arranged a nice ride to the restaurant “Della Valle“, which is a part of the Michelin guide.

We need 2 hours to get there, since you need to cross the town of Balangero and then climb up in the hills. One of my friends is the one I teached to ride a few years ago, and now he has bought a horse and a pony. He normally keeps them up in the high mountains, except during the winter period. As I mentioned, there is still a lot of snow up in the Alps.

Saturday night we went with a group of friends to Balme, my favorite place in the Alps. We had brought bob slides and head lights, and after sliding a whole lot, we went to a nice restaurant further down the street. It´s called Les Montagnards.

With the spring, the desire to work returns. I have just finished the stable door that is made up by two wooden pallets. I must admit that I am quite proud of my ability to make things all by myself! I also made that ugly doghouse in the front. But even if it is ugly, the dogs love it!
