For little Vikings at heart it is time to get out and liberate the neighbourhood of some candies and for the dentists it is time to pick up […]

Masters Class

I finally got around to getting these uploaded, converted and here they are for you to enjoy.  While at Villa Medici, this was the Masters of Piano graduating class, with formalities of the evening being done, everyone was a lot more relaxed and the music they got out of that wooden box with strings and […]

Summer in Denmark

The weather forecast has changed from sunny with a chance of showers to pouring rain with a chance of deluge.  It was essentially raining sideways for most of the afternoon.

La Picea

There are 47 restaurants in Levanto, we found this one – La Picea, on the outskirts of the old town – and  it just happens to be THE number one rated restaurant in the city.  This place is mostly for takeouts but there are some tables and chairs for people like us.  It is all […]
