This is a typical London cafe in the West End. Serving sandwiches for the office workers, and bland fast food for tourists. The pre-heat food culture.
We stayed at a lovely B&B run by Lorenza Paris in Trento for 3 days. Every morning at 9:00 am sharp, she will bring over breakfast on a wooden tray. 3 types of cheeses, ham slices, scrambled eggs, crusty bread rolls, Nutella spread, jam, butter, orange juice, and coffee.
On the 4th day of our roadtrip , we took a detour north from Tuscany to the city of Trento in the Trentino Alto Adige region, a 4 hour drive, to visit Saveria, a friend’s mother. Saveria laid the perfect lunch for us in her apartment where she lives alone – lasagne, beef carpaccio, cheese, sauerkraut, tiramisu – all homemade of course.
We were joined by Saveria’s daughter Simonetta and her twin girls – Lalita and Nilam, 14 who are great athletes in track and field.

Here & There, finding art in everyday objects.
Encountered an anti-fascism and anti-racism rally in Central London this afternoon. There seems to be a protest of some sort every weekend in this city and this weekend is no different. Division and hate are so prevalent in many societies today, from East to West it seems like they are inherent in the very being of humankind. We just commemorated Armistice Day last weekend, a stark reminder of what man can do to each other.
