... into the canal, yet we waited a good 30 minutes and it hadn't gone in at that point. The exhibits were of interest, but the idea of the place was more intriguing than the experience.

He was gently escorted out of the restaurant before he had a chance to make a sale. Not that people would be too interested in a large, oval shaped rococo framed mirror. For some reason, all the taxies are now asking for $15 to drive us from Casco back to the hotel. John had to do ...
