Saturday at the butcher's

I am still going through a dodgy time with Italy and as I said to Robert yesterday I am having difficulty seeing any 'beauty' here at he moment - so seeing something like this at the butcher's this morning certainly helper remind me that in fact Italy isn't all bad - on the contrary, it is quite a cool place to live really....go to the butcher's at 10.30 on a Saturday morning and be given a choice of red or white wine with nibbles - Italians give appalling service a lot of the time but the old style shop keepers (like out butcher) know a thing or two.


  1. Don't get too disheartened, service is dreadful here too and worse in Australia and France by my experience. Some of getting old is noticing the irritating bits and walking around saying 'I don't beeeeeeelieve it' ! Wine at the butchers seems to be a nice positive.

  2. I don't know anything about the politics and every-day issues living in Italy...but think it's one of the most gorgeous places on earth! And wine while shopping? That's my kind of retail therapy. Have a wonderful day, my friend.
