In Venice, December 10-13, 2008

Glenn was invited to speak at the "FareStoria6: Quando รจ scultura" conference at the IUAV University in Venice, the second week in December (one week after historic high tide or Acqua Alta had flooded the city). We still had high water twice a day (and it was the first time we'd ever had rubber boots included with the hotel room). The photos start in the area around the Rialto Bridge and wind down the Grand Canal on a vaporetto, then up toward the Santa Croce neighborhood where the hotel was located, and between the hotel and the classroom building where the conference was held, and back to the Rialto and to the hotel.
