Out of the time?
Fortunately the morning arrives. In the night it rained, not an heavy rain but ground under the tent was wet. What is strange? Nothing, apart from my tent which, after ten or twenty years of happy work, decided to open its lower steams. So, dry on top, and a lake on bottom (inside). Sleeping was not so much comfortable...
Trashed in five minutes and buyed a new tent in Innsbruck center.

Inn Cycle Path becomes more flat and organized. Before, it was often in country roads, together with a little car traffic. Now it is often in a dedicated space. Today there are also characteristic wooden bridges, only for pedestrians and bikers.

Kufstein is an exit from the time. Accomodation in a camping along the Inn, with no walls: evidently, no reason to close with them. Architecture is directly from the Middle Ages. Writings and bathrooms too. In the city center: an horror apparition inside a curious elevator which seemed open to go to a panoramic point; a crazy local pub with high happy voices arriving everywhere; a very good italian pizzeria; a very good italian gelateria; a tomorrow-marrying young woman who sells any sort of strange objects to wayfarers, as tipical tradition. All that is very fun!
