Questa sera: this evening

This evening reminded me of an Italian expression: La dolce far niente: the sweetness of doing nothing. But before we did nothing, we went to Faria, a Franciscan church with works by Titian, Donatello, and Bellini. And we got very lost in the seisteres of San Paolo and Santa Croce. On the way home, we saw a crowd in a campo near the Rialto, and they were all watching soccer on a large TV with loud speakers, or as they say: futball.  Went to the Doge’s Palace this morning.

    Elizabeth, it’s really hot, though. I finally broke down and shut the windows and turned on the AC. Still, I could sit at that spot on the Grand Canal and sip a spritz all evening long. I just added a photo of me in that spot. Thanks for following the blog.

    Love waking up to your blog and photos. While you’re there, you should follow the Eurocup European soccer tournament. Italy is doing well. So is the Czech Republic.

      I love traveling over here during Euro and World Cup season. Once they lost in the finals when we were in Volterra, and we thought they’d be all bummed about it They said, “Oh well.” Great attitude.

    The soccer fans are surprisingly non-olive-skinned! I love those plazas, as gathering places.
