Carnevale :-)

I have some friends who visited Venice recently, and are still pining about the fact that they had to leave again.
I'd like to dedicate this little Trouvaille to them, and my Venetian friends, who have the good luck to live in a place where beauty is omnipresent.

"Happy and careless lives the Venetian of his sunshine and his mussels, bathed his canals, follows processions, sings his love under a easy and calm sky, and regards his carrnaval as one of the wonders of the world."

I don't know about you, but reading about the Carnevale in 1804 (when 1797 was reputedly the last) makes me smile :-)

As does this picture of two happy friends sitting at Florian's on a morning during Carnevale :-)
