I'm missing Venice tonight. Here's the only movie I've ever taken — 45 seconds of a typical ride between one vaporetto station and another (the bumpiness at the end always happens as you arrive at the station). When I compare this with any means of transportation in Boston (barring a yacht in the harbor), I could cry.
I think I would love to live there, even if I had to haul groceries by boat, climb up many stone flights to my flat, put up with millions of tourists, and wade through acqua alta. It must be the most amazing, beautiful city on earth.
