Ups and Downs of Life

 

How many ways.

In the world

to go. To walk. To drive.

To reach a place.

In Chioggia

In Venice

no cars.

Only your feet,

a good pair of shoes

and

bridges

to connect you

with the world.

How many ways. To live.

the most ancient clock in the world

Two days ago I went to a small city near my home town, called Chioggia. I have known it is called the “small Venice” because it has got canals, and bridges, and Venetian palaces etc. But I have never known in Chioggia there is the most ancient tower clock in the world. I literally stepped on it, and was profoundly surprised by this “discover”. What a pity that the museum was closed, so we are planning to go back there with the kids in the summer. Maybe for a short boat trip to Venice from Chioggia and back.
