Turco,

Read this about 20 times over the last several days.
Each time something hits me deeper.

Stirs up many senses of my own travels over the years,
most recently in Amsterdam and then Kazimierz in Krakow this past autumn.

Loved this wonderful ending which takes us from past to future in an instant:

The underground trains speed
Toward Prosperity, with intercom
Voices that are soothing to me.

The salesmen of Soviet berets
Sing dirges; their nostalgia
Is their currency and their deceit.
Prague is the city of the future
Of the past.

And yes, "You'll always have Venice!"

Hope it can keep its head above water!

Happy Trails to you!

Best,

IMR

P.S. Love the Title.
