As I write this, we are sitting in a cafe in Venice, adjacent to the church of St. Paul. We just had a wonderful meal – I finally got my fill of fresh seafood – and now are enjoying some cappuccinos before we continue sightseeing for the day. At this point in our trip, I would have to say Venice is my favorite city so far – we have been so relaxed since getting here that it finally feels like we are in vacation (as compared to Paris, which felt like we were rushing just to get anywhere). It may be the wine talking, but I love this city!!
