Dear VDP friends. First of all I'd like to apologize for this long silence. I'll do my best to resume Venice Daily Photo as soon as possible.

During these last month, we have worked hard on our new project, Italie-Decouverte.com

We will soon add an automatic translation tool so that our not french-speaking friends can read it.
But for now, I'd be happy if you browse it and let a comment on this blog.

And I'd be thankful if you can "like" and follow us on the Italie Decouverte Facebook Page

All the best to all of you.

Good Morning

What do you mean? Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good on this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?
