Denver (written yesterday): The wandering DrsC are at it again, this time flying to Venice where we’ll board the Pacific Princess and sail westward to Sicily, Naples, Barcelona, the Canary Is., etc., until we reach Ft. Lauderdale about a month later, a couple of days before Christmas. Expect reports along the way, as the mood strikes.
We should have reasonable WiFi so I can continue to kibitz on matters political, social, international, and occasionally, scientific.
Venice (written today): We’ve been reading that Venice was experiencing high tides and rain. I can’t testify to the tides (ships rise with the water level) but it was raining lightly as we arrived and transitioned by bus to the ship.
