I am a gourmet and I am uncompromising on cooking matters.
Only when in Italy, I dare
to order pasta in restaurants
and pasta with lobster only
in restaurants near the sea.
So this summer I did it...
but the unbelievable happened !
Look at this lobster and bavette dish... you can see at once it's uneatable :
- overcooked bavette,
- tomato sauce looking boiled,
- and the lobster, poor sea's queen !
they definitely buried it under a shroud of braised tomatoes !
But, after all, Sardinia isn't (or wasn't) a fishers' island and local traditional gastronomy
rather turns around roasted meat.
I won't tell the restaurant name, because they made a commercial 'gesture', offering
a fruit salade with lemon sorbet and even a home made lemoncello.

Just clear water at Cala Pira
Nice places, isn't it ?
Maybe you'd like to go there and see by yourselves next summer, uh ?

A baby sloth and his favorite environment,
from a tv reportage.
Unable to survive outside the tropical rainforests of South and Central America,
within that environment sloths are outstandingly successful creatures:
they can account for as much as half the total energy consumption
and two-thirds of the total terrestrial mammalian biomass in some areas.
Of the six living species, only one, the Maned Three-toed Sloth
(Bradypus torquatus), has a classification of "endangered" at present.
The ongoing destruction of South America's forests, however, may soon
prove a threat to other sloth species.
