Happy New Year and Buon Anno to all!!!
As we were clinking our prosecco glasses at midnight in our apartment, here's what was going on down at St. Mark's square-
For the last 4 years, the city has sponsored a LOVE fest and countdown to the New Year in St. Mark's square. This year, 70,000 people attended, all kissing in the New Year at midnight, followed by fantastic fireworks over the lagoon. Kind of like our own version of Times Square New York City!!
I think 2/3 of these people walked by my apartment on their way out of the city last night between 2-3 am! Today, all is quiet. It's sunny and the streets are empy, the perfect day for a nice walk. Later I think I will watch the annual New Year's concert at Teatro La Fenice on TV.
From our house to yours, Happy 2012 !!!
