I took a short trip to Venice with Mimo. It rained very hard the entire first day we were there, but it was still beautiful. We walked for hours with umbrellas and the wind blowing the sea breeze in our faces. It was cold and wet, and we hardly noticed.
Venice is another time, and definitely another lifestyle. One morning I watched from the hotel window as men worked on a building, doing construction, and unloading the materials from the canal below. As we walked along the grand canal, large barges pulled into the docks with goods of merchandise and produce and restaurant supplies. Men loaded handcarts with the goods to be pushed through the narrow alleyways into the city.
We took pictures on almost every bridge and many canals. They are all as picturesque as a postcard.
