Monday, May 21 - A full day in Venice, the city in the harbor.
I must admit, that we have seen so many sites over this past week, that my head must be nearing it's capacity for remembering things. As I work on this blog entry for the day before yesterday (I can't do it on the bus or when we are out, so I have to do it late at night or early in the morning at the hotel, after I get the pictures uploaded), I am realizing that I don't remember what some of the things are. I suppose I could make notes of all the sites I would see, but that's not really practical as we are walking quickly through crowded city streets from one place to another. So, please "scusami" if I don't give good information for some of the images below.
We got up early today, we wanted to get out and walk around before all the crowds showed up, and what a good thing that was to do. There were other people about, but not very many. The Piazza San Marco had almost no one in it! The view below is across the grand canal from San Marko.
