“The Italian Hotel Albergo Colazzo, near Lake Maggiore, is run by two sisters, now in their 70s, both of whom have recently lost their spouses. They weren’t sure how long they’d be able to keep to hotel running.
Each morning I took my time over a breakfast of coffee and home baked Italian lemon cake in the sunny dining room. A lady from Switzerland also spent the mornings in the dining room. She told me each afternoon she would walk in the surrounding hills. She was writing a novel.”
I always love Mary’s photographs, they have a way of being both warm and informative, like the feeling you get from a really great conversation with a close friend.
