"Finalmente" (I finally got out of Rome. To Venice. Deo Gratias!)

Only St. Philip Neri could have spent more time in Rome without fleeing occasionally. And so many things happened to impede our escape that it really is like a miracle that we got there at all. This is how to see Venice: late February or early March (as long as Carnival is over), when it's sunny and about 45 F during the day, staying at a cute convent a 10 minute walk from the train station and San Simeone Piccolo, and very, very few tourists. Fr. Sabonis (my classmate from Lithuania) and I even ran into some likeminded Santa Croce students in front of San Marco. DG!
