I remember ...

A canyon under a village is often used as a dump, sometimes even as a sewer. Of course we feared this while approaching the beginning of Torno canyon.
There were some men sitting in front of the bank, under a wide tree. We asked them, and a man about fifty seemed to know what we asked for ... He said I guess you should not find sewer, nor trash.

He was right, the stream was clean, a pleasure to swim in.
