Today we left Lago di como, passed by George Clooneys village, looked for his house, didn’t see it, and got on the motorway headed to Brescia and the Mille Miglia Museo. It is housed in a the monastery dedicated to Sant’Eufemia. . .the same name of the place we stayed in Piemonte!

well, let me say, the museum is terrific! As you know, we love old cars. . .auto d’epoca. . . . And the museum itself is beautifully done. It’s probably best if I just post photos here and let you be happy looking at each one and admiring the lines of the car, the color, the restoration. . .
