Mr Hemingway

Drinks at Harry's Bar is a total cliché, but some clichés are worth trying. History is everywhere in this city, hundreds of years of it. I went with Elise, she knows the streets better than I do, we drank our Bellinis and ate our olives and it was late on a Sunday.

Two men were watching us from across the room, we could both feel it and smiled at each other. They came and talked to us, it turns out they're business men from the US. I faked an Italian accent, they gave us their numbers and told us to call them. It's like I said, when I try to be alone I end up meeting new people, and this time those people seem to have a lot of money in their pockets.

  1. I am envious of your trip to Italy, even if you can't find the solitude you desire!

  2. My mom once told me that it is just as easy to fall in love with a rich man as it is a poor man. But I wonder sometimes, what's love got to do with it? Hope you are having fun out there.

  5. I did some research. Now I know why it's called "Harry's Bar." And now I know what its connection is with Ernest Hemingway.

    Things are going your way, Stephanie. It's about time, don't you think?

  6. I fell in love with a farmer. He lives very frugally, although he has always been generous with me. I had no idea about what I now know, in how well off he is financially and especially as a human being…truly, a one of a kind, lovely man. I would have missed him if I had concentrated on his wallet, because in this part of the world, the Basque Country, things present themselves slowly, over time. I used to live in Southern California and have realized that appearances can be very deceiving, especially full wallets.
