Sinking and Stinking but Ever Charming

I have never had a desire to go to Venice before. I never thought that it was worth a visit, until I was there. The first time that I looked out across the city from the top of its lone parking garage, I knew that I would never want to leave this magical Italian city. […]

When in Rome!
