we rode through the town that the landslide hit in Switzerland last week

the quoted post above was the day (no photos that I can see), I was there again last October

very pretty part of the world

I remember corner marking on this brigde waiting for ages for Tim to catch up


sad that people lost their lives but it could have been far worse

Yo...didn't think anyone remembered, it's been a few years

That's Bondo, the base-town in the main valley for Soglio, the ancient settlement along the historic Roman passroad through the chestnut plantations.

Actually, they had another, smaller slip a couple of days later. It followed the path of the first one and took out a few more buildings.

Dave Cooper (Latte-Dave) and his new love-in-life were walking the place only a few weeks ago. Parked the bikes in Castasegna right on the border and walked up to Soglio, then took the bus to Bondo and back to the bikes.

T2...whoohoo! The memories put an instant smile on the dial.
