On the way out’ta town

October 30

IMG_1294At about eleven in the morning and while Natasha made cakes for Cristiano’s school party, Piero, Cristiano and I went to his boat moored some four hundred meters from their apartment. Piero doesn’t often drive a car but he is (as most Venetians are) a master at piloting a boat. It is nothing for him to maneuver around every kind of craft and obstacle one can imagine.

IMG_1291We took my overnight case boarded the boat for the train station but having a couple of hours and a beautiful day we toured the lagoons and canals first. Finally. he pulled along side of  the only gandola building workshop, tied up and we took lunch at a famous, historical wine shop, internationally famous for it’s small but clever crostini combinations. Here we waited for Natasha and Livania  to catch up with us.
