Our Clichéless Venice

Rainwashed Perspectives

The blue green waters reflected the overcast skies to paint pretty postcard pictures just for us. We threw aside our maps, escaped the tourist traps and walked on the rain-washed streets. Our umbrellas didn’t survive, our feet were soaking wet and the wind almost pushed us off our feet, but the city’s canals joined forces with the fall colors to make us fall in love. Sigh.
