A bit of Portugal for Becky.

Italica, the ruins of a Roman City in Spain

Founded in the 2nd century BC by Scipio, Italica was the first Roman settlement in Spain. It’s amphitheater, which seated 25,000, has served as a quarry for later structures, with little of its original marble surface still in place. Many of the pillars in the mosque in Cordoba came from Italica.

Venezia, Bellissima

Missing Venice

I left Venice last night and took the night train to Vienna. I arrived to grey skies, rain, and cold. What a shock to the system after six glorious days in Venice. Words cannot to justice to Venice so I won’t try. Here are a few photos that speak for themselves. I was taking a photography class that focused on early morning shooting. And Venice with no one on the streets is a wonder.
