Fasten your Seatbelt
We are going to have Coffee in Venice

I know, I know,
this is supposed to be
a blog about Vienna

Still, here we are, fresh off the boat
at the Rialto fish market

looking for coffee
along a nearby Calle

As promised, we are now sipping real Italian coffee,
al banco - at the counter, as you are supposed to do
when you are in Venice

Cappuccino in Padova
Drinking Coffee elsewhere

Drogheria Chemist's Shop
A shop window like a painting
by an old master

White Clover
Immense piazza in
the heart of the city

Great Italian Cappuccino
The real thing, at Bar Le Maschere,
before getting back to the autostrada
