There’s been a lot of fog here this December. It does make it inconvenient for people trying to use the vaporetti to get to work, school, and so on, because some lines are simply cancelled when the fog is too heavy.
For the rest of us, it is an opportunity to slow down, to see the city differently and to savour this difference.
La Strega (The Witch) emerges out of the fog near the Giardini vaporetto stop.
There was no calcio (soccer) being played today.
The bells of the campanile sounded muffled in the thick fog.
I’ll take the fog over persistent rain any day!
