Not to be outdone Obi Wan and various other Jedi Lords were on hand to keep the Stormtroopers of the Dark Side in check. I was however a little disappointed not to see R2D2 or C3P0 around but perhaps they had not yet had their winter service?
Also Friday brought the long awaited snow and was the first opportunity to get the snow shoes out this season. We took a walk around Monte Rotta at Sestriere. The views were fantastic and it was quite a relief to see that the Alps were comprehensively covered with a white blanket. They now look as they should do for this time of year and not like the Spanish plain.
