Carnevale in Venice - Impressions

Here you can barely see a person standing on the top of the Campanile, about to slide down:Then we had a whirlwind tour of the town (two hours = whirlwind when you are continuously walking and don't know what you're looking at!). I was, however, able to capture some impressions:

Great photography, marilyn
