Memories

Daily I feel like writing something and then just leave it..may be i need to get back the flow once again. Been out of town also very frequently. Recently i went to Venice and it was such a nostalgic trip, I went there in 79, when my son was 3 year old , and now my son took me there and his son is five yr old now:).
But Venice has changed or may be i have, i didnt find the romance in the air as i did earlier.now its just a crowded place. and the same way merchandise is also changed, earlier venice was about gandolas in all variety of materials and accompaniements  and statues,leather goods and crystal..today they have the same things which other Italian cities have.
We went to see Verona.city of Romeo Juliet and i was surprised to see the huge crowd wanting to take pictures near Casa juliette and see the place..so much fascination for doomed lovers,but does anyone tries to love like that today..its about self only.
In Italy i found people driving so carelessly and without following the rules..reminded me of my own country:)

These days, people care about selfies and showcasing... Thats the change, I guess... I am sure that you would have had a good time there... :)

We have been to Venice 4 times so far. We love Venice. But the gondola people and other vendors are just cheat. We have to be careful.

Loco mente: very true, everybody was just into selfies..I enjoyed it:)

SG:I too liked it, but that laidback charm is gone, there was so much crowd over there,but after Zurich I find these places easy to shop and very reasonable in every way.

I am yet to see this place. Nowadays people love to roam and so all places are crowded.

Good to see you back, Renu!

I'm yet to visit Venice. But I loved your insight into the changes.. and the coincidence, Renu. Doomed lovers, we had a film recently in Malayalam, a real life story on screen about a doomed love story, the audience has taken them and kept them beside romeo juliet, laila majnoo..
