Went to the actual city of Venice! We had to take a bus to the port, then a boat to the actual island. We met our tour guide and saw Saint Mark's Basilica and walked around the area over bridges and saw canals. Our female tour guide ended things short at a glass-blowing shop for a demonstration on how they make their beautiful glass pieces. It was a very short demonstration as well.. we then went for a gondola ride, which was an excursion that Antonio set up for us. I rode with Serena, Jashrine, Janelle, Alexis, and Awanda. When we got off, Antonio had champagne for us! Us five (Alexis went elsewhere) got food- I got a seafood pasta which was pretty good. We stayed and rested for awhile, and heard that the main square was flooded... we had no idea how bad the flooding was actually going to be! Awanda and I got piggybacked all the way to where we met the rest of the group! After going back to our hotel, we got some alcohol at the grocery store and played kings cup with Phil and others.
