I am currently lounging at waterfront wine bar in Genova, Italy. Sounds romantic right?
But to be franc(ophilian)….My latest adventure started out about 6 weeks ago in France…..Cannes and Villefranche to be exact.
The south of France was just as I remembered…..so gyp-set…..elegant without trying, bohemian eclectic with discerning taste.
It pains my AMerican heart to say this, but the French are the best at almost everything
Exhibit A) Fashion
Exhibit B) Baked goods
The fresh have ‘a certain something’ as they say
after france I arrived in Italy
it’s here that I am studying ‘Dolce far Niente’
- literally means “sweet doing nothing” = “Delicious idleness”. Sheer indulgent relaxation and blissful laziness, being deliciously idle.
