in the early morning light
on the Canal Grande
Cooks scurrying to and fro
in a calle near
the Rialto fish market:
Visions of scartosso de pesse
dancing in my head!
of a moment in time.
A beribboned straw hat,
a striped shirt,
Caffé latte, cappuccino,
Scartosso de pesse -
mixed fried seafood wrapped in a paper cone.
Venetian style (the original!) Fish and Chips,
albeit sans chips, but ah so good!
I'll take all of the above, please. Venice is just such a magical place. You did a great job of capturing it.ReplyDelete
What a nice place, it's contrary clean and better than my town, Jakarta - Indonesia.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing...
wish l were there instead of here ...ReplyDelete
I need to see Venice, and Vienna and Venezuala, and Vera Cruz and have coffee in them all.ReplyDelete
'm off to buy a lottery ticket.
Lovely postcards from a magical place. So you're off to Rome soon? I have a very good friend who was born and raised in Rome (near the Trevi fountain) and he still lives there. One of these days I'll return to that wonderful city, too. Please, oh, please take lots of photos while you're there!ReplyDelete
Keep those postcards coming!ReplyDelete
Beautiful Venice! Where to next?
Merisi, the "Caffe macchiato" picture brings to mind one of my favorite movies - "Summertime" - with Kathryn Hepburn and Rossano Brazzi! She sat at one of those tables a couple times in the movie with a glass of water and a caffe.ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos. I love Venice. I wonder, to the bushes there still crawl with cats?ReplyDelete
Begging your pardon, that was supposed to be... Do the bushes there still crawl with cats?ReplyDelete
Lovely pictures. The tray of caffe italiano looks particularly delicious.ReplyDelete
Vorrei un caffe macchiato per favore....

Wonderful place, Merisi; and, of course, what would a day out be but with cafe latte to sip and enjoy.ReplyDelete
