Arrival in Venice


Forget about my whining. The hassle was well worth it. Venice is magic, even more so due to way less tourists than normal.

Hard to describe what it’s like to be in big city with NO CARS! Sounds of silence. Whole other octave.

These pics from a vaporetto ( boat bus) on way to our apartment last night.

Superlatives don’t do Venice justice. Stay tuned…

About Lloyd Kahn
