The lamppost returns


Once upon a time there was a lamp.  Then there was a naked boy with a frog.  Now there’s a copy of the lamp.  I guess all we need to wait for now is a copy of the boy with the frog.

May 24, 2013. Even from afar, the Punta della Dogana is beautiful again.

The important thing is that there is a lamp, and it’s back where it belongs.  I’m not sure where the boy with the frog belongs, but it’s  probably not at Angkor Wat or the Thracian Tomb of Kazanlak. I doubt it (he? them?) would fit in well at Petra, or the Stone Circles of Senegambia, or the Medina of Fez. Just reminding some people that Venice and its lagoon are also UNESCO World Heritage Sites.  There is undoubtedly a place where the boy and his amphibian would belong, but it’s not at the Taj Mahal, or Chartres Cathedral, or here.

    Oh, hurray, the point looks so much better now.

    The next mission: to get rid of the encrustation on the flank of the campanile.
