George’s Postcard Note: Why not combine a drawing session with the best chocolate in Rome? That’s what we did at a sidewalk table at Tre Scillini in Piazza Navona. The light was changing from afternoon to evening, people were strolling among the exhibits and umbrellas, and, across the piazza, glowing buildings caught my eye. Their facades made me think of a stage set for La Boheme. Then, oops! I knocked over my inkbottle, but it fortunately fell on my paper napkin, avoiding a mess and the waiter’s watchful eye.
