George’s Postcard Note: Barga café – The Bar Alpino is THE place to hang out in Barga’s town center. Down the hill from the old city at the intersection of three important streets, it’s a great place for people watching, especially the guys as they vie for attention with that great Italian bravado involving artful use of the motorcycle. Many coffees at this café can instruct one in the finer points of motorcycle swagger – leaning upon or standing with one foot on seat, revving engine, streaking away from parking place to return moments later, sitting astride and talking while checking out audience – and finally getting off to have yet another coffee. How much young life this old cedar tree has seen!
