an old veteran
… 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.
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!

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.
