Ah, Venice… if you have been, you know. If you haven’t been, you should plan to go.
As I write, the bells throughout Venice are ringing; it is 6pm. From the window of our hotel room I can gaze across the terracotta rooftops. There is a romance here, something special in the air.
The man from the market this morning said, “Peace and love in Venice”.
Venice is quiet canals, gondolas, open markets, hand blown glass, stunning hand painted ceramic masks, black ink pasta and centuries of history.
We have been here 2 days and walked close to 20 miles through narrow alleyways, through open markets, along numerous canals and over many bridges (there are over 400 of them).

And wouldn’t you say it’s all about the light?
