Amarcord Caffè

Last night my book club met for our monthly meeting. We don't have a set meeting place and this time we got together at the Amarcord Caffè in Trani. Spumante, appetizers and talking about books...what could be better?

Trani is a small coastal city located two towns up the Adriatic coast. It is a very beautiful and well worth a visit (click here for photos and info).

In other breaking news, I finished the translation of the book I was working on!!! It was a "cinematic travel guide" to the region of Apulia. Basically, that means a travel guide that also talks about all the films that have been shot in the region. It was fascinating work! When the English version comes out, I'll post a link so you can all run out and buy your own copy! ;-)

For a look at the version in Italian, click here.

That is a beautiful shot of the restaurant.

Congratulations on the book. I will definitely be getting a copy when it comes out.

Nice photograph of the restaurant. Correct light captured.

Beautiful and warm looking place to spend time with friends ... or by yourself. I like the arched ceiling very much. Congratulations on finishing your project -:)

What a sophisticated book group! The ones I've been to serve mugs of tea and a plain biscuit.

I see you like the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Do you know that in Scotland we have a bagpipe band called the Red Hot Chili Pipers??;-)

Fascinating. One day I want to visit the Inspector Montalbano sites.

Saretta said...

Thank you, Ming, Bhavesh and Chuck!

Lindab - Oh, we have tea meetings, too, we're not always so worldly! A bagpipe band? I'd love to hear them!

Ann - Maybe we should start a tour company that does theme tours like that..."on the trail of Montalbano"!

Oooo, it looks so cozy. Makes me want to have soup, warm bread and a great wine.
