message on a bottle


Back in March, when Addie, Charis and I went to Venice, we met some really fun people at a great little restaurant/wine bar called Enoteca la Mascareta. When I heard my cousin and her husband were going to Venice this summer I made her promise to pay Mascareta a visit and say hello. Well, she did. And this is what I received in return. Our Italian friend Andrei (the self-proclaimed "wine-list") sent Sally home with a bottle of wine made by his father. In addition, he and another friend, Giovanni, wrote me a little note (in Italian - interpreters welcome!) on the bottle's paper wrapping. Wow, what a great gift.

Reason #949 for why I love traveling...

The Italians are so generous! Great drawing!

The translation is something like this:

Suzzi, take care of yourself and don't give up to draw!
Ciao!

I love this. I love the way you do this. So simple, so understated - just so cool. Nice story and gift too.
