The way we live now, jetting from palmy LaLa Land to gray and frenzied New York City, to azure Venice, the Serenissima of all Serenisseme -- we might as well be time traveling.
-- Serenissima by Erica Jong.
Today is my birthday, so I am playing hooky from work and having fun all day. One thing I am doing is indulging in Erica Jong's novel about Venice. This one is pure fun.
It also is my book for the Venice in February Challenge.
