Where I stayed
We all took a ride in a Gondole throught the canals - pretty cool I must say...
Don and I were surprised at the amount of air pollution here! We weren't expecting that at all... I had heard that the water in Venice was yucky - and it is true. It often smells bad (like sewer) and there is litter in the water too... Still it's amazing how old this all is, and the amount of construction that goes on probably all year long to keep up with the changes...
We did see a movie being filmed right when we got here!!!! We stood on the bridge over the grand canal and watched them do a couple of takes with a boat. We heard that it's for the movie with Angelena Jolie and Johnny Depp? But not sure?? Anyway it was cool! Tomorrow we will head to Florence :)
