Grand Canal 5, 2016



This is what I wrote to friends on that first evening.

My heart jumped and an overwhelming sense of joy over took me. Within seconds my camera was out and I was taking picture after picture of this amazing city. The bus zig-zagged across the canal stopping at station after station until I had a sudden urge to get off at Giglio. I walked up the narrow passage way and low and behold there was my hotel!!! Set in a small square with a church right next door. My room is small with a tiny balcony over-hanging a small canal. The hotel is old, beautiful and just perfect.
