Nice day!

The ride is a bit long, the cheese factory is small and very interesting. From there we tried to see the snow, but the road was closed because of the rain! A feather! We go to the bread museum, a surprise! Super interesting. Our guides Milena and Marcio super attentive, friendly and demonstrated knowledge of the place. We love it!
