photoblog image CH38: Lugano

CH38: Lugano

Lugano is a fairly large city in the southern canton of Ticino in Switzerland. Bordering Italy, this canton in general and Lugano in particular, have the largest number of Italian speakers outside of Italy.The city lies on Lake Lugano, surrounded by the mountains of the Lugano Prealps. Summers are really warm; a couple of fans in our hotel room were barely sufficient. Winters are dry and receive some snowfall, though.

Good of you to sprinkle some light snow around for us, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I have a reputation to keep Ray wink
I like the curves in the rails.
Ayush Basu: Yes, snaking in on either sides of the platform, Bill
A good study of curves and lines.

I seem to remember this part of Switzerland was very much like Italy itself
Ayush Basu: Oh yes, I found the heavy Italian accent quite jarring.
I've been through Lugano on a train but it was an Italy to Germany journey so didn't get off.
Ayush Basu: That must have been a memorable journey. And a much longer journey I am guessing
Excellent capture Ayush! I really like the graphics.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much
What a jumble, eh?
Ayush Basu: As long as the train driver does not think so Tom smile
