How interesting a geography lesson. About seven years now that I had my last mojito, way too many back than though.
Please have a good Wednesday.

What fantastic signage VP, methinks Hemmingway would have been more than at home here in Livorno, as I'm sure we all would be!!

It is interesting to me that even in an Italian port town, there are restaurants and bars with a Caribbean flavor.

I guess it's more fun when you know the reference behind these names.
