Later that night we had our awards ceremony and a dinner in an old building on called the Arsenale along the old ship building center of Venice. We were given carnival masks to wear as we entered the dinner hall. The masks are made out of papier mache. The Roman Catholic Religion was a pwerful force through much of Venice's history, so during carnival's the well-to-do Venitians would don masks so that if the behavior became "uncatholic" the bishops would not now who they were. Our dinner was at the end of a long week and we had about an hour launch ride to get back to the cruise ship- so as far as I know- no one needed to hide behind their mask. The next morning we took of for home and had an uneventful - but long- flight home.
Thanks to all of you for following us along our journey and I apologize to the few of you that I forgot to originally include in my daily posts.
