I am on my way to Roma today. Venice is gloriously beautiful this morning. A smart person would plan a vacation according to which city I am about to leave: that’s the time the weather becomes perfect.
A stroll out for coffee this morning allowed me to enjoy the calle without the eye-gazed herds. Church bells were ringing all around. They resound more merrily and solemnly here than in Rome.
Waiting for my ride to the Station. A water taxi this morning.
Along the way.
This guy was going lickity-split.
Venetian firefighters. Very cool.
I have always enjoyed my short stays in Venice. This time, however, I found that there is a school of canon law here.
On the way out, the sight of snow in the mountains over the water.
My view for awhile.
I watched and listen to a mom help her boy with his homework: early Christian architecture!

I am back in Rome. I said Mass at SS Trinità and sang vespers. The Great Roman Fabrizio was there! We met friends and went to Scarpone for supper, where I ran into Card Pell.
