    So it's very early Saturday morning, and we hop on the car and head northeast, home of the waters.
    Sun is away on holiday - rain welcoming us, long chat and after a walk in the rain we head to StrĂ , on the Riviera del Brenta, to Villa Pisani which was ancient when Napoleon bought it.

    Reaching it is easier than expected.

    It's beautiful and huge, and pics inside it are very very verboten, and they mean it. Then, out - in the sun.

    the park is ready, almost empty.

    we are not alone.

    We reach the maze, and after a while we are on the tower.

    And in a short while we are safe

    And we reach our target
