... buy theirs from France as it is too expensive to import. We were then sent on our way in another taxi to zoom back to the mainland. Now I know how "the other half" live. A quick trip to our room and a nice lunch of fish and salad we then "put our feet up" (Joes euphemism for a sleep) before heading to the Doges palace and church. This church is decorated inside and out with amazing mosaics of all styles and has a set of 4 horses that ...
... boats, police boats, delivery vessels, water taxis (some are beautiful looking boats), and of course, gondolas. The one thing that we did not see, in any of our travels about this wondrous city, was a gas station. All these power boats must run on diesel or gasoline, but we don’t know where they fuel up.

After the long journey home to Indiana, I can genuinely say I'm happy to be back. I realize no great experience like that can last forever. I'm happy to have also gotten the chance to spend New Year's at home in Evansville with my family and also to see some of my high school friends that I hadn't seen for nearly a year. Now I'm sitting back at my fraternity at Butler. It feels great to have been welcomed ...
