45 / Venice And Tenochtitlan

Venice is truly a marvel of human creativity. A picture of Venice from the air shows why it is called the "City of Water."

Having seen Venice, I cannot help but wish that I could have seen Tenochitlan, another "City of Water." Destroyed after the Spanish conquest of Mexico, Tenochitlan was, at the the time of the Conquest, perhaps the most beautiful city in the world.

I am in Madrid, the capital city of Spain. I regret the Conquest.

I am in Madrid, but I am dreaming of Tenochitlan.
