I'm here in Venice loving the quaint little cobblestoned streets, where there are no cars anywhere on any of the 117 islands that make up Venice. Its water taxis, public boats or gondolas or use your own feet to get you where ever you want to go.

I went on a Gondola ride earlier today and it was just fabulous! So quiet and peaceful, gliding along the narrow canals, plastic cup of red wine in hand!

I have a really dreadful cold and cough that I haven't been able to shake for weeks (which I have been cursing) but it was a blessing in disguise today...everyone was complaining about how much the canals, and Venice in general, stinks...but I couldn't smell a thing and just enjoyed the ambience!

The missing guy from my tour has now been located in a Florence hospital, not sure of the entire story but there was apparantly amounts of cocaine involved...I'm sure you can connect the dots...

I'm finding it a bit quiet without my roomie gone with the pox and I have no one else to miss the bus with, the responsibility is all mine!!
