My view for a while

Farewell to Venice.

The pilgrimage is officially over and I am off to Rome.  But… sigh… what a sight to have to leave.   And from the relative quiet and clean air to … well… you know.


I made it by vaporetto with 10 minutes to spare.

I will now fight with the onboard wifi for a while and, once I have given up, I will read from my Kindle a book sent by a reader.  (I am into the Kydd series).



This was about what we did for most of the trip.



Back in Rome.  I just made it in before rush hour.



I am in my apartment, I did my grocery shopping, I put laundry in (really needed) and I have the computer online.  Soon I must get a cab and race to Barbarini to meet someone for supper.

So far so good.

    Keep the updates coming, as possible, Father! I miss Rome so much since my first visit last year, and Venice is definitely on the list of places to visit. Thanks for the pictures! :)

    Ditto! I miss Italy! My last site of Venice was at night by boat! What a beautiful site!

    Any insider tips on how a family of 6 can afford to go? We haven’t been back since 2001 (1 child ago). My saintly nonna over there has died since, and I would dearly love to be able to afford to pay my respects at her grave.
