June 11

Ok, Rick Steves is correct in his description of Venice, "Soak all day in this puddle of elegant decay." This is incredible! We spent our afternoon getting acclimated. We are staying all the way down the Grand Canal at Salute. There is just palace after palace and all are gorgeously decadent...but melting!

But for the art: saw an interesting installation of Ukranian eggs. The artist had 3 million eggs painted by people from various walks of life and then arranged them in greatly enlarged sections from a Van Eyck painting. These are installed in two places...we saw 4 sections today. Stunning!
