I know I already shared at least some of these photos. I was sorting through them again, to send them on to the friends we were on this trip with, and I quite liked them. So, some again and some more.
On this trip we went on one of the gondolas for the first time. You get a slightly different perspective when you see Venice from the water! You also get slightly more rats. Though, on this particular trip, we got a rat anyway. We were waiting at a restaurant for our table to be ready, when a man came up and informed me that a rat had just run inside. Umm….? Was my response. Because he’d thought I worked there. So he ambled off to find someone else and we kept waiting. And then we ate there anyway. is that gross?
I often visit places and judge them a little to see if I would like to live there. Venice, as pretty as she is, gets a big fat nope. Not because of the rats. More because tourism seems to have completely overrun the city (which I know isn’t quite true, many locals are likely hunkered down behind barred windows – having a great time). It does have a nice collection of doors and windows, though.
