Hiding from the godawful combination of hangover and bright sun.
Venice remains beautiful.

Observation from last night: was talking with companion about the horrors of the Bush presidency, the threat he represents to the Republic, &c &c &c. went to piss and while I was thinking about that it occurred to me that such a conversation probably has unfolded within 20 feet of where I was sitting, at least 200 years ago. Different president(doge) and different Republic, but still.

Intriguing and ironic, I thought.

    Will pictures be following your eminent return to the City?

    (as opposed to a collection of houses, that is)

    Glad you're having a good time. Watch out for the Vespas.
    • Re: the more things change...

      There will be photos, yes. And so far, no vespa hazard! you're not allowed to drive in venice, after all.
  • I loved that you type better drunk than I do sober....
  • Hey you.
