Bar Life

When I moved to Italy in 2002, I was immediately struck by the vast difference in the drinkning culture. As apposed to sitting in a darkened corner of a traditional English pub, speaking only with those whom we knew and drinking as much as we could before last orders (usually having skipped dinner) I found myself in a much healthier and more social environment. Open courtyards engulfed in glorious sunshine, light and colour, with wonderful apperitivos and the blissful absence of a bell ringing at 11pm.

There is a gap in this series when I returned to the UK! though in recent years I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to spend a lot of time in Spain, where if anything, the Bar Life is even better!
