So the schools are open again, the city is busier and back to normal. So now’s the time to get out of town again. One of the great things about the end of the summer holiday season is that traffic at the Gotthard tunnel eases and the journey down to the Ticino becomes bearable.
A few weeks ago (via a series of adventures i won’t bore you with here but involving a bass guitar and five bottle of red wine) i found myself travelling up the Maggia Valley and into the beautiful village of Maggia itself. Now Switzerland is more full of beauty spots than a pomegranate has pips but this place near to the village of Maggia literally took my breath away.
A short walk north of the village takes you along the Riale Salto and to a place where the river cascades over the rocks and falls into a pool 50 metres below. It really is a spectacular scene and whilst there was a small number of people it felt unspoilt. Of course, i had to swim in the pool and under the waterfall. Amazingly fresh and went a long way to curing the ailments caused by the previous nights wine.
Above the waterfall is the beautiful Capela Da La Pioda which commands amazing vies over the valley and the stone bridge which crosses the Riale Salto. As usual, i did it all back to front but i would recommend heading up the path to the top and then finishing of your short hike with a dip in the pool under the waterfall.
Of course, there is a short cut which this chap here took. I wouldn’t recommend it though…
If you get a chance, check this place out now the holidays are over and the weather is still good. A beautiful place to visit.
I love a bit of cheese. Whether it’s Raclette, Fondue or just a piece of Cheddar with bread, a good culinary evening usually requires a visit to the cheese shop. But where to go? I tested out a few of the cheese shops in the city.

Since I lived in Asia with my family in the 80th, I'm helping street children in the Philippines. Giving them shelter, food, clothes, education and of course lots of love. Can you imagine exposing, selling or move away and let your child behind, alone in the dirty streets, without protection against violence, been beeted, hungry, naked?
Please, help us helping this poorest of the poor. As you can see, we do no need any luxury, our shower is outside, we have simple rooms. Privacy is only protectet by a plastic awning, where we also wash our clothes. But we are content if our children have two meals a day, education, proper clothes, and of course our love.
The house stand into water to prevent mise, snakes and other animals entering. Cleaning the water ones a week is necessary, to keep everything nice and clean. The children are helping with fun (see picture).
