I heard that Venice was sinking

August 28, 2010

…so I came to check out the situation.  Nope, still here!

On the Ponte degli Scalzi overlooking the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy

As long as I’m in Italy, though, I figure I’ll do some exploring.  I’m staying with my friend Pierina at her family’s beach house in Lignano Sabbiodoro (a seaside resort town about 45 minutes outside of Venice), and we plan to do a little travelling as well.

I’ll be back to Paris and more regular blogging next week.  In the meantime, I thought I’d share one of my favourite posts from the HiP Paris Blog. It’s a tongue-in-cheek description of the difference between French food standards and North American ones. It’s so hilariously spot-on, I wish I’d written it myself.

Cult of Quality: Meeting the French Standard

Happy end of summer everybody!
