Wanda arrived safe and sound - exactly 24 hours after she was due here. To her immense credit, she had a smile on her face and was immediately taken with Venice. No residual effects from her very, very, very long journey.
She unpacked, we took a stroll/tour through the 'hood - including a long walk on the Zattere to the market to stock up on Prosecco (2.90 Euro - about $4.00 - for GOOD Prosecco) and then on to a lovely and quite innovative dinner.
Lineadombra is at the very end of the Zattere closest to our apt. We dined leisurely on the terrace, and I'm so happy to have been able to introduce her to this wonderful city in this way.
By the way, a correction - she has indeed been overseas - many time to Britain. It is her first trip to "the continent" and a non-English speaking country.
We have a busy day planned - so ciao ciao
