Love the art work!

Love your discussion of "passeggiata" an Italian tradition. The walk and the "Always Hungary" book should work well with getting "bella figura" for all of us. I'm ready for the coastal walk on St. Jean Cap Ferrat.

Love this about the passeggiata. Gregory and I sat in a café on the piazza in Verona and watched the elegantly dressed family groups (toddlers to great grandparents) stroll by - but I recall it happening before dinner. Maybe the secret is to walk all the time!? Lovely tradition.

J'adore! Quel article interessant! On fait toujours des balades apres diner en France ou aux US. Cela permet aussi de mieux dormir tout en aidant la digestion!
J'adore le style de Julie Messerschmidt! Quel splendeur et quel talent!


Lynn, these pictures are magic!!
You are always so elegantly svelte that I can't imagine you looking any other way!
I very much enjoyed learning about the passeggiata-- and, especialy,revisiting our favorite,flaneuring(is there such a word??) Before becoming(even more!) ancienne(minus bad backs and knees) my hubby and I would always take an evening stroll after dinner.
Between lovely scenery and people watching, it provided a sure set up for pleasant dreams.
Thank you for this reminder, and always,such an uplifting and fun post!!

Dearest Lynn,

I can't tell you much I enjoy the shared joy of France and food! I look forward to spending more time with you when we get back to Burgundy.
With hopes in February, we hope to be in Pommard. Won't we have some fun!

Thanks for you friendship!
