Last day in Venice...I've turned into a little of a local, although I'm sure none of the locals would agree with this. Today, I went for cafe, to the bank, the market and cooked pasta for a few of us here at the hostel who wanted in on it. I've hung out with a Swiss, Brazilian, Aussie and an Argentina in Venice, everyone seems to get defined by their country when traveling...good or bad?...you be the judge.
Amusing things to note.....One, I'm staying at a hostel called Francesca's although I haven't quite figured out who Francesca is, since the sweet couple who runs it are Chinese and have Chinese names. Got to hand it to them on the marketing...I mean if I were running the joint I'm sure I'd change my name to Maria, or Anna, Gabriella or something along these lines. Second, the bells ring here at the most random of times, it's never on the hour or half an hour, it's always 6 or 7 minutes before or after...I swear they are just ringing them when they feel like it.
