The rest of my time in Norcia passed quietly and peacefully in a regular rhythm of prayer and study. On Wednesday morning I boarded the bus to Spoleto and then a train to Florence to meet Henri. En route, I enjoyed the beautiful Umbrian landscapes...
...including a great view of Assisi.
After meeting Henri in Florence, we stopped for two hours each in Padua and in Venice. Unfortunately, I don't have any good pictures from Padua, but here are a few from Venice. We approached by boat.
San Marco's was closed by the time we got there around 7:00 pm, but we were able to enjoy the splendid facade.
