To: Toronto, Canada
From: Venice, Italy
We are staying in Venice – the city with over 100 canals. Yesterday we had 3 boat rides. Two rides were in water taxis and 1 ride was in a gondola. There were 7 of us in the gondola – 4 passengers, 1 gondolier (standing on the back of the boat like the picture), & 1 singer & 1 accordion players. We traveled down narrow canals like the picture. It was lots of fun.
