A little of the Lunetta di Miele...

This past week has been busy and hectic, with a wonderful little break of two days in Venice somehow elbowed in between. I have spent countless hours in long lines for purposes of immigration, and it's been disheartening at best. But slowly the process of living here moves forward, even if it has its bumps along the way. I will get a permit to stay--we finished the registration yesterday--and after that, hopefully residency. But I am trying to take things one step at a time. It's hard: I'm not the patient type.

Once we arrived in Venice, though, those thoughts of tedious paperwork and endless waiting zoomed out the window, and we were in a sunny day paradise with boats passing by. Each time I visit Venice I love it even more, and I'm slowly getting past the fact that I'm not the only one--that Venice is a tourist mecca, and anything I think I'm seeing with fresh, new eyes has been doted on and commented about numerous times before, by everyone from the tank-topped visiting American to Henry James. But none-the-less, Antonello made our way to Venice's "lesser-known areas," and even those are dotted with plenty of visitors. Venice is worth it anyway, though, and I will buy Murano glass beads and Venice carnival masks every time I return, just because it's Venice, La Serenissima.

Anyway, I'll post more about our little honeymoon later, when I have a little more free time on my hands!

Thank you mom and Corrie for the packages!! They made my day.
