April 14th - travelled to Venice. It tooks 4 trains to get here - 3 back to Florence and then 1 to Venice.

We are actually staying on Murano, an island slightly north of Venice in the same lagoon that is known for it's glass products. Because of the distance to travel, we didn't get here until around 4:30PM and didn't get out to look around till after 5PM. By that time, things are starting to close down on Murano as the tourists go back to the main island and back to the mainland. In fact, we had difficulty finding an open restaurant for supper. Most of them are open during the day while the tourists are here and then shut down quickly afterwards. Other than taking trains and eating, not much else happened today.

Venice is a very strange place, as one might expect with canals instead of roads.
