What a charming way to explore the Old World without even having to leave the New. I did wonder if there was an internal inconsistency in that it was apparently the narrator's first time inside the coffee shop and yet he was able to recognise the exotic variety of foods and pastries. I also admired the way in which you explored the theme of the gold crosses, thus bringing out something of the richness of European faith down through the centuries.

Congratulations on your EC. I loved this--what a beautiful story. Nice job with the topic.

This is lovely. The descriptions of the room are beautiful. I felt at home just reading it! And the grandma's story of triumph over fear, bitterness and hatred by focusing on beauty and on the cross is very moving. Very well done, and big congratulations!
