        As it turns out, the Russian Consulate cannot get us tickets for La Scala, it is completely sold out. There are only door tickets which sell for $1000/person. Instead of heading for Milano we decided to leave the coast, drive north past La Spezia, Parma, Cremona and Breschia to Sirmione. Luckily I found their phone number on the PalmPilot from 2 years ago and got a reservation. It took us only 3 hours and we were glad we did it. It is at the tip of a long slender strip of land that juts into the lake from the southern shore. Just a beautiful place. The restaurant we loved last time (Valentino's) was of course chiuso a lunedi (closed Mon) but we tried Pace's and it was also very good. The greatest displays of Italian gelatis tempt you as you walk back to your room. A nice run around the peninsula in the morning and we are off to Milano and back to some serious business - training 15 surgeons about phakic IOLs.

Looking back from the hotel, along the peninsula to the mainland.
