MY FAVORITE SPOT IN THE BRITISH CAPITAL

In front of HM King George VI's statue. I have a tremendous amount of admiration and respect for George VI. Since my first

LA BRUSCHETTA PIZZERIA (ROME, ITALY)
[June 22, 2013]
 
 
We made a special trip to the pizzeria LA BRUSCHETTA in Rome based on the video that our pastor Greg Laurie
made this year (watch below). And we were not disappointed! LA BRUSCHETTA has the best Italian food
anywhere in Italy! And the service is fantastic! The owner, Bonifacio,treated us like we were royalty. 
Stop by LA BRUSCHETTA if you're ever in Rome!

******************************
E-mail that I sent to Bonifacio on June 29, 2013:
 
Bonifacio,
 
My family and I made it back home safely after our Italian adventures. I just wanted to thank you again from the bottom of my heart for the great time that we had at your restaurant. Eating at La Bruschetta was the highlight of our trip to Rome! We will never forget the warmth with which you welcomed us in your establishment. And the food... the food was the best Italian food that we had anywhere in Italy! I'm so thankful that our paths met through the video that our pastor, Greg Laurie, made about your restaurant. We are already looking forward to eating at La Bruschetta next time we're in Rome!
 
God bless you!
 
Pascal Reber

Hi my friend,
 
What a nice surprise your email. I really appreciated it. Thank you for the beautiful pictures. I'll keep as a great memory. Thanks also for the beautiful words. Hoping to see again a big hug to you and all your beautiful family.
 
Ciao
 
Bonifacio
 
 

 
"LA GRANDE VADROUILLE"
A FEW MOVIE LOCATIONS
[June 19, 2013]
 
 
The movie "La Grande Vadrouille" starring Louis de Funes and Bourvil is a classic
of French cinema. The movie was directed by Gerard Oury and filmed in 1966.
I must have seen "La Grande Vadrouille" dozens of time growing up. It remains
my favorite French movie of all times. The pictures below show individual
scenes from the movie in 1966 and how those locations look in 2013.
