... a blown glass shop as they are well known for it in venice and I got myself a lovely shot glass for the collection. Then we moved on to find a little pastry place, so we both grabbed something that looked good but we had no idea what they were. We had been hassled a few times to go on a gondola and the thrifty Bianca side was coming through, I just couldn't part with 80-100 euros! But then this nice little chappy who had seen us walk past already ...
... br> The new TE and some leaders were invited to perform and we had lots of fun watching them... The China TE are very spontaneous especially the Yinchuan girls... they can sing and dance anytime, very cute!! Liu Yan even traded a sing and dance item with Chua for performing for him in exchange to get him to go to Yinchuan!!!
After the dinner... the drinking session continued at the Piano Bar... and the hyenas appeared... Derrick and Chua were determined to see me drunk ...
... was ancient and picturesque (above all the heads!), then on to the supposed place Shakespeare used as a setting for Romeo and Juliet. Wow – what a crowded place. Lovers from all over the world come to write messages on the wall – they replace the white board very regularly and add their lock to the gates adjacent to Juliet's statue, which stands beneath the legendary balcony. Others molest the bronzed breast of the Juliet statue in the name ...
Both cities are Italian landmarks and I have now visited both of them. Verona was old time cute and pretty - went to Juliet's balcony and saw the statue - touched it for luck! It had a small square where merchants sold Venetian glass which was very pretty. Glad I went! It's definitely one of those story book places, and we managed to navigate on our own since Jenny wasn't done with her exams yet. The next city (the day after) was Venice ...
... Alice did the sightseeing on her own. After three months together, every day, the break did both of us some good. On our way out of town two day later we stopped at a "traditional" balsamic vinegar location. Private tour of the family run operation where they take either 12 or 26 years to produce some very fine vinegar. We then moved on to Verona, famous for it connection with William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliette. Great Roman Arena ...
