Today began with Mass in the crypt of San Marco! We were at the altar where the tomb of St. Mark was for hundreds of years before it was moved upstairs.
On the way over the basilica we had some water gurgling up into the piazza.
BTW…. I have come to the conclusion that I do NOT like the way Mac handles importing photos. As a matter of fact, I detest it.
That said… I’ll post more later if I can figure the dopey system out.
A couple more shots, lest I post too little for a good taste.
In this church, S. Zacaria, you will find the tombs of St. Zachary, father of St. John the Baptist, and of St. Athanasius.
Remember that Venice pretty much sacked Byzantium when it had the chance.
A typical and evocative view.
Lunch involved my beloved squid ink again.
I will try to post more, but, honestly, Mac (I am on my laptop) has a system of importation of photos from different sources that is clunky to the point of being purposely resistant to common sense.
I didn’t post my second course for lunch!
Liver, in the Venetian style.
And then there was the view from the balcony this evening.
Here are the tombs of Zachary and of Athanasius. One above the other!
