The original plan was to go visit another one of Jesse’s friends who is studing in Florence but Luci and I convinced him to go to Venice. Florence is nice but Venice is truely unlike anything else in the world; plus, it is a shorter drive from Milan. We left early on monday the day after hiking out from the hut. We arrived in Venice around mid-day and went straight to the major sights. We decide that the best way to see the city and the surrounding islands was to buy a 24hr ticket for the Vaporetti, the Venetian style of public transpoprtation. We took a Vaporetto out to Murano, one of the other islands in the lagoon know for its glassworks. We watched a glass blowing demonstration and strolled around this smaller scale version of Venice.
Jesse left yesterday early. We still haven’t heard from him. Hopefully his flight went well.
