Gondola on Wordless Wednesday


Gondola

I love Venice though I have not been there and last night finished reading A Noble Radiance by Donna Leon, the mystery series set in Venice.
This is the sixth book in the series, and the first is Death in a Strange Country (as I recall).

You and I both love it and have not been there! I hear they are really sinking, it is a shame.

Oh, Jess loved the Gondola rides in Venice. Sometimes they have these rides in places where we live. Wouldn't it be nice to be on one and see all the different surroundings and culture of others?

Venice is one of my all-time favorite places. I was very lucky and got to spend two weeks there twenty years ago, and it was as wonderful as I had hoped. I'm a big fan of Donna Leon's and really enjoy her books.

I have read of Donna Leon's books and feel like Inspector Guido Brunetti and his family are personal friends. I had the joy of spending a weekend in Venice and it is truly like no other place!
