„You have to see the sunrise over Venice“, I was told. But there were clouds in sky.
But all in all, you don’t need a Palazzo –
…and you don’t need the view from the Campanile di San Marco
…or canary birds on balconies,
you don’t need a sweeter sound than laundry drying in the wind
or a more spectacular smell then the remains of the Mercati di Rialto
if you just walk the remote lanes of the city, getting sooner or later inevitably lost.
