It's good to go shopping on a rainy day.

Venice, Italy, April 1984. I am carrying a bag containing a pocketbook Mom just bought. The leather beauty cost $45, and Mom considered the purchase a big splurge. She still carries it (she also continues to wear those black shoes).

The shops behind us are closing for lunch; one store has already put up its entry gates.

The difference between Europe and the US - you'd never see an American store close for lunch.
