Venice in a glass

That was shot (and enjoyed) here, at Banco Giro, a triangular plaza by the old marketplace. This was roughly where The Merchant of Venice was set, where Marco Polo did his business and where Luca Pacioli learned about and then shared with the world the essentials of double-entry bookkeeping — in a form that hardly changed over the centuries that followed. Think of it as Ground Zero for trade and commerce in the Western World.

We visited caves in Slovenia today, as well as Trieste, courtesy of Paolo and Monica Valdemarin. Alas, I lost my card reader, hence no photos, yet. Tomorrow, the Dolomites.

    Hope you can hit the Dolomites at sunup or sunset, the colors that transform from the stairstep formations are well worth the effort…
