|A little vicarious trip to Italy |
by way of Virginia:
prosecco + Aperol + seltzer
= uno spritz.

|The incredibly beautiful Sainte Chapelle.|
I could spend hours in this place
(and I have—twice I've been to a musical
performance here on a summer evening, when
the sun doesn't set until almost 11 p.m.).

|I rode the train from Virginia back to|
NYC earlier this week. All I remembered
about this shot was that I took it
somewhere between DC and Baltimore.
But iPhoto very kindly informs me that this is
the Gunpowder River, an inlet of Chesapeake Bay.

|I took this shot a couple of weeks ago of|
the brand new (and highly reflective)
4 World Trade—right now, this building
probably has the best view looking down
on the newly opened 9/11 Memorial.

|. . . where you'll find the Colonne de Juillet,|
put here where the Bastille once stood
to commemorate the July 1830 Revolution.
It's topped by "The Spirit of Freedom"—
in one hand he holds a torch, in the other
the remains of his broken chains.
I was surprised to learn that there is a
columbarium in the base of the column that holds
the remains of 615 victims of the revolution.
