… I wish, I would have learned the voga veneta this way…

But who am I to whine: on this very afternoon, we headed for a nice long rowing tour with a caorlina into the paludes, a wide, shallow area beyond Murano, from which I brought home - once again - impressive memories from the orange early autumn sun on Burano in front of dark storm clouds and even as impressive blisters on my hands.

… is not only a bar at the Rialto market of Venice, but also translates as “anchor” or “once again”. Both was very fitting, when I had the chance to return - once more! - for a few precious days to Venice in September.

Leonard Cohen, born 21 September 1934

Congratulations to Your 80th birthday!

My dear friends, please note that this man has more charisma and - yes! - appeal as a grey ol’man than some have ever in their hole live.

May You still have many happy years on this earth!

(Video: Dance me to the End of Love - Leonard Cohen, live in London, 2008)

Today, the famous regatta storica takes place. Though more a folkloristic event than a real regatta, it is still one of the great events for Venice.

The official boats of the municipality are stored in a very special place, the cantiere comunale at Malamocco / Lido. We’ve been there in 5/2013 to get a caorlina (it was the red number 5 in the frist picture) for the voga longa.
