Santa Maria della Salute

Santa Maria della Salute
Hospitality comes from the heart.

I get up early, usually at 5 or 5:30, even when I travel.

I walk or drive out by boat.
I like it when the sun rises and the soft colours bloom.

At lunchtime, I want to rest.
I go to Andrew.
He has a small bar on the side street. Away from the hustle and bustle.
He smiles, I smile too. He can read minds, make me a double Italian coffee.

I add a tramezzino.
After strengthening comes a glass white wine and then I start to make my notes.
I write. Andrew looks from time to time if I need something else.
I notice that and smile at him.

Then I go to the hotel, to change my clothes and to sleep a little.

Later I will take a little stroll.

I'm going over to San Marco by boat.
Full of people like a stadium. Dreadful.

I will go back to my island immediately. The sun is already lower.
I'm trying to photograph the Santa Maria della Salute, so nice in the backlight, but it will not do work with the railings of the boat dock.

A boatman speaks to me, smiling "If I want to take a good picture?" "For sure", I smiled and nodded. He takes me through the barriers, to the outside of the Vaporetto. Woah, free view!
I laugh, throw him a kiss, with my hand. He laughs.
While I'm shooting and he takes the people on board.

Thanks, man! Have a great day! :-)

Back at Andrew. Time for Aperol and later white wine.
I write again. Only a few pages.
Andrew quietly and unobtrusively puts small loaves or homemade snacks on the table for me, cares for me. He turns on the exterior lighting as it slowly gets darker. I think he does so, cause I have more light to write.
Viktoria comes to work, she is very pretty with long red hair.
Buona sera Viktoria! :-)
Andrew smiles. He knows I felt well.
8 o'clock, time to break up.
Back at the hotel, I'll be setting a little time in the garden, smoking and reading.

Buona Notte, Andrew.
See you tomorrow. :-)
