On the run

Quickly, this morning, 'cause there's more art to be seen and more food to be eaten...

Marcia got back to Venice on Monday after a week in Paris and a road trip through Southern France and Italy. She's happy to be back and we're happy to have her. We all three dined at a Agli Alboretti Monday evening. Gorgeous garden setting, innovative (a la Ferran Adria-ish) menu, stunning tabletops (glassware, plates, cutlery), snoooooooty staff, and food that was good but uneven. We still had a good time.

More Biennale installations yesterday - Aotearoa (a second time for me, first for Wanda), Portuagal (Wanda's heritage), and Singapore housed just across the Accademia Bridge in the magnificent Instituto Veneto di Scienze Lettere ed Arti. The work is by four impressive Singaporan artists and the direct contrast to the style of the building making it even more interesting for viewers.

Back to Cantinone Gia Schiavi for more of their amazing cichetti and then a restful afternoon (see Chris, I CAN far niente!).

We went back to Alle Testiere for our second visit - even better than the first and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Along the way, Marcia snagged the best shoes seen in Venice so far.

I'm leaving the photo of the cookies up...for obvious reasons!
