The Fox and the Grapes

La volpe e l'uva, The Fox and the Grapes, Effetto Venezia, LivornoLast year the same guys built a Moulin Rouge around a window to celebrate France, now they have put a temple-like facade on their front door to honor Greece. By the way, the name of the place, “La volpe e l'uva” (The Fox and the Grapes), comes from one of the most famous Aesop's fables.

It sure has a Greek feel to it.

I like the painting of the fox, it seems to be relaxing and enjoying a good time... :)
God bless you!

One of my favorite tales. Always enjoy a good reference to literature.

That fox seems to enjoy the grapes! She reached them after all!

My best friends(whose marriage I attended last Saturday) sailed into Livorno aboard the Norwegian Epic (NCL) this past weekend. Did you see them and say hi? Why not. There were only 4,000 onboard. Another example of how small this world REALLY is some days.
