... was a very enjoyable couple of hours. We all commented that it was surreal to be sitting by the Grand Canal as if it was an everyday occurrence.

They say this because the prisoners would sigh as they crossed over to their fate on the other side. I love finding out the simple meanings embedded in pieces of history.

We'd spent 6 hours on 3 trains and our 20-30 min final haul on the local bus turned into a 2 hour escapade. Lesson #31 - Sometimes you have to admit defeat and ask for help.
