Not Courmayeur, Mostly Valle d'Aosta

And here are all the photos from my Italy trip that were not of Courmayeur itself.

I went for a 'walk' (which turned out to be hiking -- I hate hiking). But it was pretty (pics above and below).

On one afternoon off (there was more than one afternoon off: it was that kind of conference), we went into Aosta itself. Here is the town hall, but there were a lot of nice Roman ruins too.

Arco d'Augusto:

Porta Praetoria and the Torre dei Signori Sancti Ursi:

And a Roman theater:

For the conference dinner, we went to some 'agriturismo' place with a field full of cows with very very loud bells attached to them.

And somewhere behind those clouds and thereabouts is Mont Blanc.

Finally, back in Milan, I stayed one night in a hotel before catching my flight back to the US. It had a garden and pool area crawling with these (kinda cute) little lizards, which did not want me to photograph them.

Thanks for sharing these photos! It's amazing how "European" Europe can look sometimes.
