The Subtlies of European Culture

This is a sign that was posted on the side of a tourist bus in Paris.
Europeans aren't into being subtle, that's for sure.

What I've been up to . . .

For those of you who actually read my blog occasionally, here is my very specific reason for why I have not updated my blog for the past month.

This was our view from our small country house in Arezzo, where we stayed for about two weeks. It was about an hour by train from Florence, and was right in the centre of Tuscany (the Chianti region, specifically).

Bellano, Italy, is a small town along the coast of Lake Como, about an hour and a half away from Milano by train. This is the view I saw every day for almost a month.

It was quite lovely.
