Venice wept yesterday as we loaded up the water taxis and headed out. Maybe it was just rain, but I'd like to think the city was marking its regret at our departure. Throughout our four days there, the weather had been great, if a little cold. Now as we got up early and left right after breakfast, the skies above La Serenissima opened and let fall gentle tears which, while tinged with sadness, wished us God's speed as we struck out for Verona.
