Off to Amsterdam tomorrow but I'm thinking of travelling light, with just my new and lovely small (Dell Venue 8 7840) tablet and so putting up the trip report when I get home, thereby not posting daily by choice rather than because of the hotel's darn wifi restrictions. We're not going for any particular exhibitions but because both the Rijksmuseum and the Mauritshuis have had big rebuildings of late.
I mentioned a few months back that Edward Sklepowich's Urbino Macintyre mysteries, which are set in Venice and which we like a lot, were to be published in ebook form. Well they were, and you can get them on Amazon, but annoyingly not in the UK.
An English Man in Paris
Due to technical problems (like in Rome) I wasn't able to do daily
updates from my hotel, but it's all there now!
Jeff in Florence
Well, Fictional Cities has had a bit of a quiet March and April reviews-wise but things are about to get a little manic trips-wise. Visits to Florence, Paris and Amsterdam are coming soon, with barely fortnights in-between.
Personally I wouldn't have thought that we needed another film about Casanova, but it seems that Jean-Pierre Jeunet, the somewhat unprolific director of Delicatessen, Amelie, and TS Spivet, is in pre-production with Amazon on a TV film of Casanova's escape to Paris.
In case you were looking forward to eventually watching the most recent episodes (19-22) in the Brunetti TV series I've just been told that MHz, who broadcast and make the DVDs of the subtitled versions, are saying that Donna Leon has contractually forbidden them from releasing them in non-German-speaking territories. How disappointing is that?
