  • Just a slight breeze, near calm on the canal
    Domenica Mattina, time to rest and refresh the floating city

    Feel the anticipation. . . . . even without their boatmen
    A small but worthy corridor fleet, waiting, willing and able to serve

    The walking bridges reflect gentle but strong arches
    Poised to support the next wave of seekers

    Always searching for the spice merchants who haunt these ancient chanels
    Safe from yesterdays mainland marauder, but not tomorrow, il turista.
