photo by Nereo Zane
On my way out the door to get to church, I discovered an e-mail from Nereo with this, most appropriate photo.
As you might expect, the Festa della Madonna della Salute is big among Venetians. This is a photo Nereo shot yesterday, of the people waiting to get into church. Venetians light candles in the church, giving thanks for another year of good health. It's a reminder each year of Venice's deliverance from the plague in the 17th Century.
Now, I must run out the door, as I'm late for church myself.
I hope there won't be crowds that big where I'm going.
