Last stop, Venice

I used to know a painter whose motto was “If it exists, why can’t it be beautiful?” This could be the slogan for the city of Venice. Where else is there so much art and history condensed in such a small space? And so much good food? Here are a few pictures.

    Such a magical city. I understand why it’s the favorite place of Tia and countless others throughout the ages. Yes, that is St. Mark’s Square, or a side of it anyway. It was early evening, after a gondola ride, and before dinner, the hour when even St. Mark’s is quiet. A bride and groom arrived with their bridal party–the bride carrying an enormous bouquet of white roses, her bridesmaids in blue silk, the groomsmen in tuxedos–and in a nearby cafe an orchestra started playing. Swept up in the joy of a wedding, everyone began to dance.
