    1. Yep. I’ll try to find out what the bottles might contain – I think I identified one as Cinzano … perhaps I’ll put a crop of the original on scrappress the next days ….

  1. Martina, I was just alluding to the lack of clarity of the window to see the whisky (?) or wine (?) bottles. After dinner conversation is usually accompanied by a drink, so your quote fits perfectly. This time I had no esoteric reference in mind.

    1. Ah, and I thought I didn’t get some famous quote (at least Shakespeare!) that everyone but me knows ;-).
      Definitely some wine bottles I think … perhaps some olive oil and balsamico vinegar, too? But does that makes sense?
      Perhaps they don’t have much space so everything that is filled in a bottle goes to one place …
