More Photos

Oh, how I miss Venice and Italian travel in general! I think of the freedom, the visual beauty, the musical language, the adventure, the clear tastes and layered smells.

All of these photos are from Venice.

A wall...

Kiosk right near where we sat to eat the "fish fry" on Saturdays at Rialto:

Where the public signs are insufficient, the local residents have done this:

One of the saddest, Catch 22, type things in Venice is the presence of the "grandi navi" the giant cruise ships that are destroying the canal. They dump thousands of tourists onto the precious island. They don't usually spend any money except for a few trinkets because all of their food and board are provided on the ships. And the ecological impact is enormous. Here they are from the hotel window (Hotel Imperial, last night in Italy)

View, looking the other way, from the hotel room window :
