This was a once in a lifetime event - 1.5 million visitors came to Lake Iseo over a two week period. I had watched as Christo's team assemble the pieces of the peer but the sight of bright orange lines stretching across the lake to the island still took me by surprise. 

But nothing could prepare me for the delight of stepping onto the masterpiece. There was a gentle, undulating wave motion as we walked across the water and the soft tissue felt great under bare feet. People all around were smiling and in a state of play.
