Corteo delle Donne

Between the Storica and the transfer of the Serenissima, I’ve gotten completely behind on everything else around here, and am now swamped trying to catch up. More media to come, but in the meantime, here’re are some photos I took of the event from the best seat in the house. There are none of the Regata itself, because it’s very hard to take pictures when you’re rowing (that, and we had a real hothead for a timoniere – the helmsman – who never would have stood for it).

    You had the best seat in the house—I watched the whole race on RAI here in the US. I would love to attend next year!!!

    PS–you must have been exhausted by the end of the day.

    I didn’t really how tired (or hungry) I was until we went for some truly exceptional pizza after, at the top of Via Garibaldi. As I sat consuming salsiccia, radicchio and scamorza combo (which really hit the spot), I kept wondering how in the heck I would ever get back home to Cannaregio!

    An extraordinary day, all around, I must say…

    Breathtaking. I will be in Venezia on April 25, 2009 and hope to witness that regatta! Can’t wait. Wonderful photos.
