Starting out...still in East Hampton

Here we are on Hook Pond, about 1895...Thomas Moran's Gondola, brought back from the fabled city of its origin, with a gondolier, for picnics on the pond next to the ocean.  What an idea!

I am off to that city, the door to Cathay, to study the language of Dante, and amuse myself in the fantasy of the real citta de Venezia.

  1. Please tell us who was behind the Thanksgiving feast? Is there an oranization of Americans in Venice? Is there a place where they meet or tend to meet? A place where English is spoken? (Hary's Bar is too rich for me.)
