When I woke at 6.30 this morning I knew that the day had come. The day to make an old dream come true. The day to be at the Rialto fish- and vegetable market when it opened.
I jumped into my clothes, ran down the 51 stairs from my apartment, walked through an empty city,
and came to the market just in time.
Quite another side of Venice.
No tourists, busy workmen.......and a few workwomen.
Colours and shapes.
Smells and fishes I have never seen before.
The fishmongers are artists, and very proud of their products.
I worked around with my camera, trying to be invisible.
Oh my! I am glad I woke early.
