The first time I experienced rain in Venice was in Saint Mark’s Square. But the most memorable thing about that day was how the pigeons that inhabit the Piazza reacted to the storm. As the clouds gathered above us and the sky darkened, the birds began acting very strangely indeed, swooping around San Marco in huge, agitated flocks.
