After 3 weeks in the land of no sun and no sky, Georgie was very excited to land in Venice.
We didn’t tell her that in Venice there’s no ground.
She looked out the window of the B & B
and saw streets of water
We took her downtown and she saw, big streets of water.
To cheer her up, we thought we’d take her out for brekkie in Venice, even though it was still pretty dark.
More streets full of water,
Egads, in a watery city, all the food comes from the water.
And look at this.
And here’s a man preparing breakfast.
Fortunately some of the shops catered to Aussies and we found a fine selection of nibbles.
Like these little cakes – no miniature cupcakes for the Venetians!
A chocolate fountain, I know, they are done to death, but this was in a little suburban cafe.
And so much chocolate that for inspiration they made Chocolate Salami.
They also take their marshmallow very seriously.
No white and pink pillows in Allens Packets,
in Venice you do ROPES of Marshmallow.
The Venetians also take their fashion very seriously.
Look at this young couple.
And this young pup.
Even the grannies look seriously stylish, even if they are just nipping out for bread.
And the grandpas are not left behind in the style stakes either.
