Also amusing was going down the Grand Canal, looking out at an antique cigarette speedboat, and seeing a couple in flagrante delicto tucked into this boat with the lights on and curtains drawn.
Travel to Venice was amazingly overcomplicated. San Francisco -> Chicago -> Paris -> Venice. Venice is... I really don't have words for it. The whole thing just seems so... bigger. More so. The history of this place is truly boggling- I thought walking through London in the wee hours felt like a meander through history but this- it feels like I'm in an alien world. Really, it's just an incomprehensible difference, not just the language difference. I mean, what would drive people to live like this? How would this have seemed a good idea? It's fascinatingly... alien. Unique. I could honestly spend the rest of the time i'll be in Italy right here, without regrets.
Dude. Oh man dude. This place is awesome. I am completely in awe. I am gonna spend so much frigging money.
