It seems that I am in Venice!

Ciao a tutti!  It’s nice to be back in Venice, but I must admit the flight(s) seemed to go on forever.

Enough whining. The views of the Alps at sunrise, between Zurich and Venice, are something to make your day start with a smile.

And, for any architects in the audience (or those interested in an example of how some of  the buildings in Venice were constructed), this little scrap of history, not far from Campo San Luca. I really like those small, thin bricks.

  1. Didn’t mean to put you under any pressure, dear Yvonne.
    I know you’ll keep me posted, as you prowl around the city :).
    No going out for me this evening, enjoying being at home
    Ciao, ciao and looking forward to hearing about the midnight hour in Venice. 2014’s gotta be a good year,

    • Darn it Ralph, that was our little secret. There’s a huge crowd in Piazza San Marco, but I’m not part of it. I’ll find some stock photos tomorrow, I suppose.

      A most happy, healthy 2014 to you, mystery friend. Pop!!! There goes another cork. Baci e abbracci, to you and those cats. xoxoxo 🙂

    • Rob, we really need to co-ordinate our comings and goings better.

      I wondered why I was strangely drawn to that wall, now I know it was your lingering aura. (And, Linda’s)

      Buon Anno, con Prosecco! Wheeeee ….

    Glad you’re there, and that you had such a spectacular last leg to the flights….. it doesn’t really make the previous 24 hours or so go away – but it’s a spectacular view!
    I’m counting down now – 25 hours and 50 minutes until I leave for the airport……….

  14. Great photos from the plane! I’ve tried taking photos through the plane windows and they sure didn’t turn out as nice as these.

  15. Welcome home! Excellent photos as always. Hope your cats are fine. I realize they probably couldn’t make the trip with you. I’ve just returned from Arizona and mine won’t let me out of their sight.

    • Hi, Arthur. Its rather nice to be back here again. It’s interesting, each time a person returns, it seems like you’re seeing things with fresh eyes, which is a neat experience. Give those cats a pat from me. My cat (and her teen-aged son who lives next door), seem to be coping without me. Hmph. 🙂
