Ciao! A quick post from Venice, where it is hot, humid, but beautiful as ever. After two days packed with research (and hilarious attempts to navigate the Correr library speaking no Italian!), I finally have the weekend to myself. In between work appointments though, I have found time to enjoy a couple of the smaller museums and palazzos (partly to stay out of the sun). Oh, and delicious meals accompanied by Italian wine (and a glass or two of Prosecco). I have been taking lots of photos and will have tons of things to show you when I get home and can download them. In the meantime, I leave you with a photo of the little street where my hotel is ~ tucked away in the quiet residential neighborhood of Dorsoduro. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend ~ I will see you in a few days with tales of my Italian adventures! XO!
