PhotoHunt: Landscapes

Happy Saturday! Here are a couple of scenes from a recent daytrip to the North Carolina mountains (Ashe County).

You can see why they call them the Blue Ridge Mountains~

PhotoHunt: Food

When in Venice, do as the Venetians do and eat cichetti, delicious little bar snacks usually eaten standing up and enjoyed with a glass of wine or two. One of the best places for cichetti is shown in the photo below, Cantinone gia Schiavi (also known as Al Bottegon), an eatery ranked in the Top Ten restaurants in Venice on Trip Advisor despite the fact that it's not a "sit down" restaurant at all - it's an osteria (a wine bar that serves food). It's a lively place, filled with both locals and tourists, and the food is wonderful. You can also buy a bottle of wine to take back to your hotel or apartment.

I love that this place has its very own shrine to the Madonna next to the entrance. She has a halo of electric red lights around her head~

Dorsoduro 992

The photo above was taken in 2007 while the one below is from 2010. The blue paint outlining the shrine had chipped off but she does have some flowers this time~


Another view of Cantinone gia Schiavi. This osteria is across the canal from the church of San Trovaso in Dorsoduro.
