…which is why I fell off the Internets for a few days. At the campsite we were staying in (the one Ross worked at, for any Curtin CS ppl reading this), it was 3 euros for half an hour! That’s one euro every 10 minutes! And in Venice itself it was even worse.
In other news, Venice was pretty cool. Lots of very twisty streets, random funky bridges over random little canals, lots of shops selling pretty glass things. Steve was very patient with my obsession with the pretties – he waited outside so many glass shops… Mmm, pretty things… We had the obligatory gondola ride, too. I’ve turned into a bit of a nautical geek, and spent some time pondering the rules of right-of-way. Because of how the gondolas are paddled, they have to keep to the left – which means that the usual rule of passing to starboard just doesn’t work, especially in narrow canals. So how does it work? etc, etc.
Anyway, gotta go now to catch our scenic train….
