Day 20: Venezia, Italy

Ahh, Venezia! Gondoliers sing romantic melodies as lovers and friends alike ride under bridges and through the city. Shops are lined with colorful Murano glass jewelry and extravagant Venetian Masks. Stacked closely side by side, homes come in hues of reds, yellows, oranges, and pinks. Flowers hang from balconies and local children stare at the tourist passer-bys. In Piazza di San Marco we drop a few bread crumbs and are swarmed by a flock of pigeons as a live band plays Django Reinhardt's "Brazil,"  at a nearby restaurant. I wonder if there could be a place any more magical than the beautiful streets, bridges, canals, cathedrals, and alleyways of Venice.
