365 Days of Venice - typical afternoon in the neighborhood

This is one of my favorite sights in my neighborhood. It's the perfect example of the very simple lifestyle that exists here. What you don't see in this picture is the groups of people standing outside this local bar/cafe enjoying a glass of wine in the mid-day sun. It's absolutely perfect. What is commonplace for local Italians is new and different for me. It's what I now strive for as part of my new life here in Italy- to somehow magically slip into this comfortable low-paced happy lifestyle.

Italy in 2015 said...

Ok, I just had to stop and comment. I found reference to your blog on a Slow Talk forum and started just two days ago reading it from the beginning. First, let me say, that from the out set I felt like you were telling OUR story. My husband and I are planning on moving to Italy for the very same reason!

Anyway, when I saw this picture, I thought Yes! THAT'S IT EXACTLY! This quaint little scene speaks to our hearts! It completely exemplifies the lifestyle we so look forward to experiencing! Thanks so much for sharing your experience!
