We are at the Viktoria Palace for 2 nights. It has a rustic charm and is set on the far side of the Grand Canal, a short ferry ride from Venice.

Perhaps it's the late sunset? Today was the summer solstice, It wasn't properly dark until nearly 9:30.
Is it the excitement of being in one of the most famous cities in the world? No, The ferries are old, the canals dirty, and the buildings decaying. It's actually a bit of a letdown ...
... and English. Wow! We watched a movie in French. I liked listening to the French language again. The food was always available. Buffets in the morning and at lunch. Lots of pizza any time of the day. The cruise ship was approximately as big as 70 elephants (that's 5 metres long for each elephant) in length, and it was 13 levels high, that's about as high as the FMG building, the glass one in the Square. It was ...
... the world, time for another food moment. We dropped the bags off at the apartment and looked within a small distance for somewhere to eat. After dismissing a few overpriced options along the Grand Canal, we turned the corner and found a couple of restaurants situated along a smaller canal intersecting with the Grand Canal. Good prices, nice views, and it turned out to be quite tasty food. Tom had a mushroom risotto and I had cannoli. A quarter liter of ...
