... a table for us at the water's edge. Thirty feet from where we sat the gondola stand was kept busy with couples and families who wanted to take a "slow cruise" around the canal. Watching each gondolier push off from the stand and slowly make his way into the stream of Grand Canal traffic, I could not help but wonder how they kept this routine interesting and fresh…especially for themselves.

There was no scale on the map so we just tried to orientate using the road/bridge signs. This was not going well at all. A few times we walked down a road/street and thinking we knew where we were, turned up in a completely different place. Occasionally going down deserted roads and ending ...
