In the morning Rod and I set out to explore the Basilica SS Gioanni E Paolo, one of the large gothic churches in the city.
The Doge's big chair.
There were alot of tombs to the various Doges who have ruled the city, each one more elaborate than the last.
In the afternoon i killed some time in the market area near the Rialto bridge waiting for our friend Jim to arrive. Here's the view from the bridge....
All kinds of small food stores in the market area near the Rialto bridge including this horse store.
Then i wandered into the fish market area which was just shutting down for the day....
Box of eels.
The acqua alta continues in this area near the fish market. That's the Grande canal making its way up into a cafe.
Our friend Jim has made it here to spend a couple of days with us at the Biennale.
These local ladies enjoyed a moment of celebrity thanks to Jim.
