Venice Emerges from Quarantine - And it is Divine

Venetian Cat sunbathing on the Grand Canal at Rialto - Photo: Cat Bauer (Venice, Italy) As Venice yawns, stretches and blinks her way into the sunlight, slowly coming out of quarantine, contrasting stories emerge -- a bit like the parable of the Blind Men and the Elephant. One individual's version of reality can depend on which part of town they see, and who they talk to -- if you go here, you will see the elephant's tusk. If you go there, you will see the trunk. Or the knee. Or the ear. ...

The vegetable garden is (mostly) planted! I got in under the wire; we woke up to rain this morning. I put up the tomato tripods and planted twenty-four seedlings.

Park Guell, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the great legacies of modernist architect Antoni Gaudi, is currently for the exclusive use of the residents of the area.
