A Still Point, Piazza San Marco
As always, photo re-sized for page; please click on it for full resolution
After having avoided Piazza San Marco during busy hours for as long as we've lived here, I suddenly find myself with the perverse urge to go there at exactly those times when it will be overrun and unbearable. I don't recommend this to others, and I know this phase will pass, but in the mean time here's one more photo--the last, I promise.
I don't know how much these white-coated waiters are paid, but after watching them for a little while I suspect that they deserve more.
