PhotoHunt: Reflections - Alessandro and the Carabinieri



Alessandro asked the Carabinieri in Venice then in Florence to have their picture taken with him. His great grandfather was in the Carabinieri. These pictures were from our trip together last October.

This is my latest entry.

Nice! The Carabinieri headquarters in Venice is in what used to be the convent of San Zaccaria. It's fun to walk by and think about the nuns that used to be there.

Hope you have a great weekend!
