Coffee, Anyone?


Cappuccino Time
Saturday Morning
at the Farmers' Market

Would you rather
have truffled Burrata cheese

or an authentic Italian cornetto
with the sweetest prosciutto imaginable?

Eccoci qua
leggendo il giornale!

Reading Italian headlines
is always a revelation.
Letters can indeed be rearranged in ways
unimaginable in any other country:

"Ode al Malpensa, ecco il Bossi poeta"
*
Di Pietro al congresso Idv:
«Uniti per buttare a mare Berlusconi»
*
Bertinotti dal comunismo al gossip:
«Mi sento inattuale»
*
Il caso Boffo e le nuove tensioni
«Tutta la Chiesa sotto attacco»
*
Berlusconi,
"Nella crisi, l'Italia meglio di altri paesi"

Quotes from the
Politics Section of today's
"Corriere della Sera"

La Salvia
Yppenplatz corner of
Weyprechtgasse
Brunnenmarkt
Vienna
16th District

  8. Thanks for stopping by TNS. I haven't heard from Debbie in quite a while. She was in the process of revamping her site, then suddenly, I can no longer access the link.
    I am hoping she is just busy with her career or just decided to quit blogging all together. Let me know if you find out anything, I'll do the same.

  17. Is that cookie next to the cappuccino perhaps an amaretti? I just made a cheesecake crust with those. Yum. You're making me hungry!
