European Cafe’ Life

In Europe at least one thing remains constant, whether in Rome, Paris or Vienna, and that is a jaunt to a neighborhood cafe'. While lingering at a picturesque spot in Paris, I am reminded of its famed artists, writers, and musicians, carrying close to my heart that old Parisian mystique, a setting for painters and poets of days gone by. One of the great pleasures of Paris is to sit on a grand boulevard hearing the beauty of the multitudinous languages and observing the people from all parts of the globe. The Viennese Kaffeehaus, often set in a darker, old world ambiance, seems designed for reflection, especially in the colder months, when people come to read and write and savor their rich pastries and Viennese coffee. On the other hand, the Italian "bar" is more outwardly expressive, a true social meeting place, the perfect way to catch up with friends and loved ones, where indulging in the glorious pastime of watching the world go by stays alive. After living two decades in Rome, and indulging in a dally fare of a perfectly blended cappuccino and a warm cornetto, there is no more civilized and pleasurable ritual than to begin each morning by awakening my senses in such an unhurried, delectable manner.
