Venice (Un)masked

Another Italian weekend. You already know about he food part a bit, now it's pictures time. We made a short jump to Venice today, just to get a taste of pre-carneval foreplay. Nothing to be totally excited about, but still some nice sights. Things will be totally different next weekend with the big parades and all, but today was also pretty crowdy, so it's - at least for me - STAY AWAY from Venice! :)

It's 2.40am and I have done my LJing and I am going to bed and I wish you all a nice week, ok?

she just stood there.... with her "wings" open and people just flocked around her, waiting for the picture. I liked it a lot.

And thanks!

Well, it's just Venice, as bizarre and charming as it can be.

I am two hours of very relaxed drive away from Serenissima.
