Redentore

Muktadhara Ray
Witnessed the Redentore festival today.People had started pouring in at St.Marco from 8 pm onwards.The restaurants at the lanes and bylanes were filled with people. All boats were by then anchored at the canal.some even held private parties.By 11pm the lane by the main canal was filled with people from different nations.Everyone sat on the road looking up at the sky.It was then that the fireworks began. It was unimaginable! People cheered and hooted and the atmosphere was electrifying. Day before yesterday when we reached the summit of Eiffel tower at midnight and saw the entire city of Paris from there, I thought this is it, there can't be anything better.But I was wrong. Everyday is a new experience and everything is becoming a memory of a lifetime.
