Finnish winemaker in Panzano07.29.09

Stumbled across an interview with a Finnish winemaker in Panzano, Tuscany. As this is close to our annual destination Agriturismo Le Buche di Viesca it shouldn’t be too hard finding the place in a few weeks time. Enjoy the interview.

I knew there had to be something wrong with that Diet Coke thing.

Revisiting movies part 107.22.09

From time to time I have to revisit some movies just to make sure I don’t forget them. Hah! So just recently I revisited the Wim Wenders’ movie “Don’t Come Knocking”. One of the best road-movies ever. Such a good story delivered in a beautiful way. And the way the movie is shot, the scenes in themselves, might make you miss the story: they are so stunningly lovely. The scenes comment directly onto the story. So it is a true sad-happy scene which wraps up this sad-happy road-movie. A road-sign telling us that “Divide” is only 1 mile away, and that “Wisdom” is so much further away in the distance. 52 miles.

Don't come knocking

Haven’t seen the movie yet? Buy it.

  • the tuscan cat
    I for one believe that Leonardo (da Vinci) was really smart. And I also believe cats are smart creatures. So when I spotted a nice cat sleeping on a scooter carrying "the signature" Leonardo somewhere in beautiful Italy I just had to "shoot".
