Winter seems determined to hang onto the northern hemisphere this year! Venice was the recipient of a surprise snowstorm yesterday. San Marco (above) always looks lovely, but I’m sorry I missed it before the footprints marred the pristine white surface. Two weeks ago, San Marco was thronged with Carnevale revelers! Now it’s a deserted landscape, which is the way I like it, to be honest.
My workplace, the Hospital SS Giovanni e Paolo (below) is arguably the most beautiful hospital in the world, having originally been built as a guildhall and art academy.
