As you guessed the warmth I was looking for was not delivered and being cold became more like being hot in my old dorm room.
So, to say the least I slept off and on, being cold, seeing my breath and becoming more and more disappointed. However, that is all I want to say about it.
The next day I got up early, try 7 a.m. and made my way to the main office. I paid for 30 minutes of internet, used 20 and then caught the bus into Venicia.
After a 30 minute bus ride, about the best thing I had done so far, I made it to Venice. And, once again, I was tired and cold. However, that would soon change as I made my way to the grocery store where I bought a baguette (0.57) and a bottle of red wine (1.49). I sat on the bank of one of the canals and had a breakfast fit for a King, or bum, however you look at it.
Soon after I made my way through streets and alleyways over bridges and across canal after canal. And then I found the one thing I had wanted to see; San Marco.
Soon after arriving the most impressive thing about the square was not the gold encrusted, distinctive architecture but the amount of pigeons on the square. I met some girls from the midlands (mid-England) and i laughed my butt off watching them interact with the pigeons, for which they had bought seed for 1 Euro.
So i laughed and got pooped on, literally and then left there after having the best time I had had in Italy up until that time.
More To Come. . .
