George’s Postcard Note: Barga Bar After a long day wandering about the old hill town of Barga, Peter and I found a small restaurant with a bar on its balcony. What a great place to take a break, order campari & soda, and enjoy the view. I noticed all the tables lined up to face the view – no wonder: a spectacular vista of mountains and rooftops. We were alone there for a while, then some ex pat Brits sat at the other end and chatted real estate in Barga. Interesting to easedrop. After a drink (served with orange slices) I started to sketch the place. The Brit guy’s bright red leather slip-ons caught my attention.
