Venice

A beautiful City

Today we left Sestra Levante and took the shuttle back to Florence. We then took the train to Venice. It was a two hour shuttle ride and then a two hour train ride. But Venice is worth it. No cars are allowed on Venice islands. Everything is done by boats. While eating dinner we saw a washing machine being delivered by boat and a lady being dropped off at her apartment by a boat ambulance. We were guessing that this was how they bring people home from a hospital stay. We saw the police boat. Looking forward to seeing the fire boat!

Here are a couple pics of Venice, it is pretty amazing.

I forgot to introduce you all to Gelata. Yes, the most amazing thing on this earth. I'm not usually an ice cream eater, but this stuff is amazing and they sell it on every block. I've tried a couple of favors, but Crema (vanilla) is my favorite.

Kelly had something interesting for dinner tonight. It was meatballs on Polenta. It was very tasty.

We found an interesting shop that sells wine from these weird barrels. They pump the wine into water bottles. It cost 2.30€ for 1.5 liters. Here's a couple pics. We bought it. It was pretty bad :), but didn't stop us from drinking it as we played cards in the hotel courtyard.

Tomorrow we plan on just wondering around Venice and taking a gondola ride. I also saw a place where you can get a pedicure where you put your feet in the water and the fish eat off the dead skin.....interesting, I'm thinking about trying that to!

Nighty night,
