Last week…

Can’t really believe that on this day last week I was visiting the site where “The Last Supper” is displayed. They do not allow pictures, but I felt the urge to commemorate the visit anyway. This is Santa Maria delle Grazie where it is housed. I did not realize before that the painting was inches away from being destroyed by a bomb in World War II. It is pretty breathtaking and well worth taking the extra day to stay in Milan so that we could see it.

It is almost time for another trip and I find that I never really wound up the previous one. Last October we went to Umbria and Venice. I was telling the tale here and then the holidays happened, life got busy, there were family complications and I never got back to the thread of the story of our trip. Last week I went back to look at the pictures and decided to pick out a few of my favorites that I had not ever processed in order to apply a few apps to them. I came across a group that symbolized our week in Venice. They are my favorites of the experience of Venice because I took them from our second floor apartment window where we looked across at the Frari Church and down onto the small canal below the window. Every day around 4:00 two gondolas would appear and the gondoliers would discuss their price with customers. On the last afternoon we were there we succumbed and took our own ride. I loved Venice…
