Made here to Venice after 3 planes, a bus, and a boat. Flew over Iceland (no delays and didn't see any volcano). Tired, but very excited to see the city. It is beautiful! Liked seeing San Marco, gondoliers, and eating real gnocchi for dinner. People from all over the world here to visit--Japan, China, South Africa, United States, France, Germany, etc. Shops full of dazzling Murano glass, Burano lace, and glittering masks. Beautiful architecture, pigeons, crowded alleys that wind all over the place, geraniums, sidewalk diners, and green shutters.
