corner view "coffee companion"

Edward Hopper's works are on exhibition in Rome.  I love his works and I'd have liked to see some of those great landscapes,  (there were three or four) the urban scenes ... and most af all the "nightahawks", which has been recreated at the exhibition, so...what better "coffee companion" than the solitary  gentleman despicted in  Hopper's  masterpiece? What we and the man talk about? Well he was not a talkative one, and then...there was my husband with me!
