Sometimes morning marches in on you rattling it’s blasted chains of reality while you are still under the spell of a dream so wonderful, so vividly real, you refuse to let it go. You feel it slipping away, slowly, inevitably, and you desperately try to hold on to the taste
Walk with me to the places you dare not imagine… The darkness is back. Anybody surprised? No? Good. When darkness falls over Venezia, there is a good chance you might find me wandering the streets of Dorsoduro. It has become my favorite sestiere ever since I spent a week there
Let’s go a bit lighter today, shall we? After my last slightly macabre post I thought I’d give you a reprieve from my dark and moody side by taking you for a walk in Cannaregio, the northernmost of Venezia’s sestieri. A simple walk. No fantasy twists or darkness, I promise.

And the Castle of Light loomed behind them on the opposite side of the river. An ominous looking construction with a highly misleading name… Soundtrack: Bryan Adams “I Think About You” (click here to listen)
