I know this has very little to do with Gondolas, but I liked the photo, so here it is.
At the end of our adventure in Europe this past spring, we spent one more day in the region near Milan, where I shot this photo.
The city of Milan is often compared to New York, but not far from the center of activity, things are much more relaxed. And as with just about anywhere there are Italians living - the food is amazing and the approach to living much wiser and more enjoyable than most other parts of the world.
As has always been the case, I didn't want to leave.
