Musings in Venice
Musings on Friday evening in Venice:
Is it possible to take too many photos of canals, gondolas and Venetian masks? So far, I’ve snapped a picture of just about every gondola I’ve seen … and there are a lot of gondolas in Venice! But at least it’s cheaper than riding in one. From the negotiations that I’ve overheard, the going price seems to be 80 euros ($103) per person.
I miss hearing the sounds of church bells in Paris, although I may change my mind when they start ringing early tomorrow morning.
Prosecco tastes even better when you’re sitting at a café next to a canal.
I love Italy. Why has it been 2 1/2 years since my last visit and why has it taken me so long to get to Venice?
Too bad I didn't bring my ragged copy of Shakespeare's A Merchant in Venice. I kept expecting to bump into Shylock at the Rialto today.
Time for dinner! Will it be pizza, pasta, fish or some local speciality?
Sorry that there aren't more photos in this post but the internet connection is really slow at my hotel. I'll try to upload some more later. Ciao!
