As my last post indicated, I was on vacation. So, I will be presenting, over the next few posts, a selection of pictures from my trip. I was in northern Italy where they grow rice. ie around Milan. The mosquitoes are fierce. As a result there are many efforts at killing them from wall plug-ins to electrified tennis rackets to sweep through the air and zap em. While poking around in stores near Turin I found a flyswatter.

My aunt actually managed to kill a mosquito with this. She did not, alas, score any points.....
