I’ve been in Venice 3 days and enjoyed each one, although when one is alone one’s voice is a bit unused. My main activities have been wandering all over Cannaregio and Castello and talking pictures. I’ve picked up some essentials at the local CoOp and Parmigiano cheese and asparagus at local markets. I cooked risotto with the asparagus and cheese and survived to tell the tale.
The last few days have involved loads of photography. A real treat came this morning when I woke to find everything shrouded in fog, one reason I wanted to come for a longer period than usual. Ethereal and magical.
I’m maintaining a detailed diary of things and excerpting it for my blog on SlowTravel’s site. Later, when it’s up, I’ll share the URL. These little snippets on this blog and Facebook are just to update folks. Wireless here is very good [and throughout the city]. but I’d rather not be hanging around the computer all the time. So, it’s off and out the door to take pictures tomorrow!
