Flag of Italy  , Veneto,
Tuesday, April 15, 2008

We are in Venice. We got in yesterday from Viareggio (the beach). We neglected to book a hostel for here until the day of, which actually worked out in our favor in a huge way! We ended up getting a REALLY nice hotel for like 35 bucks apiece, which isn't more than a normal hostel by much. Plus, the hotel was on the island and in a decent location!

Venice is very cool. Those of you that know me know I LOVE the water and I love boats. So, haha Venice is right up my alley! We spent the days and last night just walking around with no real agenda. We made sure to see the Square and tried to eat pizza (good pizza was a lot harder to find here than everywhere else in Italy).

Oh, one notable story:
We had just finished dinner and were about to walk around a corner and all of a sudden I feel someone just run into me. Turns out it was a bum being chased by a cop. Actually 6 bums. The one that ran into me ends up tripping right after on the steps and gets busted. It was quite the spectacle. Also, perhaps bum isn't the right word. It was one of those guys who sells fake gucci crap. That's at least the 3rd time I have seen the cops chasing guys like this.
