25 Mar

Today we took the #6 boat over to Venice. We met our guide below the bell tower and we were off. She was very nice and knew her stuff! First she told us about the Basilica of St. Mark. Then we went into the palace of the Doge. Very interesting! Then we learned some more stuff and it was shopping time! We had a choice of going up the bell tower or take a gondola ride. I chose the gondola. I’m glad because it got very foggy quite fast.

Then shopping.

I bought a glass boat in a bottle, a book on venice and some other odds and ends. I also saw a man blow glass! Tomorrow we are all going to Florence! I can’t wait for the train ride.

I also talked to mom and dad tonight, that was good to hear from them.
