A few final observations.
The first is that the biennale was brilliant. The second is that the permanent Nordic Pavilion is sensational. The third is a recommendation that you take a look at the Architecture Foundation's Venice Superblog at www.venicesuperblog. typepad.com. And the fourth is that Astragal never wants to see another Bellini or canapé ever again. Actually scrap that. Make it a day or two.
