I hope you’re not packing for a trip to Venice this week. It seems that in addition to the US East Coast, Venice is flooding again – the worst in at least two years. Venice is one of my absolute favorite cities and I find the idea of St. Mark’s Square resembling anything like a swimming pool totally disconcerting. I’ve heard that they’ve built wooden catwalks over some of the flooded areas for pedestrians to use. Of course, if you are going now, you’ll get some very interesting photos!
